Join us for a series of science fiction films from the 1930s – 1950s presented by Jason Bruecks. Though these movies project daring (for the period) views of the future, they also take on a delightful absurdity as we look at their naiveté in retrospect. The films include fantastic images of space travel using then new sound and lighting technologies, lavish set designs, and what were highly imaginative perceptions of extra-terrestrial creatures. This series is intended for adults.
It Came from Outer Space (1953)
Starring Richard Carlson and Ellen Fields. An amateur astronomer and his fiancée are stargazing in the desert when a spaceship bursts from the sky and crashes to the ground.
