White Phone box in Hull

At exactly 2pm this Sunday, October 1st, every phone box in Hull will ring. Anyone who picks up a phone will be dropped into the science fiction world of 2097 – with the chance to be taken on a free ride into the future in a Tesla Model S electric car.

Come along to North Point Shopping Centre this Sunday, October 1st, anytime between 1pm and 6pm to watch all five of the 2097 sci-fi films, shot in Hull and Denmark, exclusively before anyone else.

This piece of sci-fi across an entire city, is the culmination of 2097: We Made Ourselves Over. In spans two cities; Hull, the current UK City of Culture and Aarhus in Denmark, the current European Capital of Culture.

Every Saturday and Sunday in October, Hull will host pop-up screenings in neighbourhoods all across the city for five astonishing science fiction films shot on location in Hull and Aarhus. Go to the 2097 website to find out the screening locations and times.

Every weekend, a lucky few will come face-to-face with 2097 in an unforgettable ride into the future in a Tesla electric car. Answer the call on October 1st, come to a screening or dial 50 2097 from any phone box to find out how to meet them.


Can’t make it to Hull? Don’t worry.

Each weekend we will be releasing each of the five films online and alongside each film, a companion interactive episode for smartphones gives you the chance to talk to the future rulers of the city and tell them your hopes for 2097. Just search ‘2097 We Made Ourselves Over‘ in the Google Play or Apple App store from Sunday 1st October.




2097: We Made Ourselves Over is a new work by Blast Theory, co-commissioned by Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Aarhus European Capital of Culture 2017 in association with KCOM

    This sounds fascinating. I am so intrigued. We are hoping there is not a queue at our local white phone box on Sunday. I am considering camping outside ours tonight.
    Looking forward to seeing the screenings.
    City of Culture for Hull has been amazing so far.
