About Colossus

Tucked away in a secret location in the Rockies, Dr. Charles Forbin (Eric Braeden) has developed a massive computer system, dubbed "Colossus," that is supposed to ensure the nation's safety against nuclear attack. But when Colossus connects to a similar Russian computer, "Guardian," the intelligent machines begin conducting a private dialog. Nervous as to what they might be plotting, Forbin severs the connection, only to have Colossus threaten a nuclear attack if the link isn't restored.


PG 12 1970 Science fiction film/Disaster Film 1h 40m

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Colossus are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
