Skeptics Cinema and SciScreen, in conjunction with the British Science Association and Edinburgh Skeptics presents: Westworld

In an amusement park for rich holiday makers which provides its customers a way to live out their fantasies through the use of robots that provide anything they want, two of the visitors choose a wild west adventure. However, after a computer breakdown, they find that they are now being stalked by a rogue robot gun-slinger. Starring Yul Brynner, revising his role from The Magnificent Seven, this time as a psychotic robot bent on killing humans.

Before the movie, join us for a talk by Burkhard Schafer, Professor of Computational Legal Theory at Edinburgh Uni who will be talking about the legal issues that arise from the plot of the movie.
