Station X, this weekend’s sci-fi event at Bletchley Park, has been cancelled by organisers.
Cambridge Film Trust and Independent Cinema MK say the decision has been taken due to poor take-up of online ticket sales in the run up to the event.
They say it makes it very unlikely the targets neded to balance the budget would be achieved.
A spokesman said: “At this point we wish to express our thanks to the organisations, artists and volunteers who came together to create the event programme and committed their time, funds, expertise and dedication to the project.
“All existing ticket holders will be refunded in full.
“Please can we point our disappointed films fans to our upcoming season of Sci Fi at MK Gallery called DON’T PANIC! where there will be 12 special events with artists, musicians, scientists and filmmakers.”
