SCIENCE FICTION FILM FESTIVAL

Join us for a trip to the 1950s!  We’ve got four sci-fi flicks from the “classic era” of sci-fi cinema. These films were low budget, targeted at teens, and surprisingly successful with common themes like fear of nuclear weapons, alien invasion, and science experiments gone awry. Great throwback fun!

 
 
 

 

SEPTEMBER 6 - 8:15pm

THEM!

 

 Them! (1954) is the first of the 1950s "nuclear monster" movies that terrorized a generation. When a nest of gigantic irradiated ants is discovered in the New Mexico desert, they quickly become a national threat that finally culminates in a battle in the concrete sewers of Los Angeles.  Early effects aside, this is a true sci-fi classic.

FORBIDDEN PLANET

 

 Some say Forbidden Planet (1956) is the best film from the golden age of sci-fi. It captures the romance, the spirit, and the look of 50s sci-fi, even touching on relevant themes of advanced technology and the responsibilities that go with it. Join us on this trip to planet Altair-5, and meet the most famous robot in history, “Robby the Robot.”

TITANIC

1953 • Clifton Webb, Barbara Stanwick, Robert Wagner

 

 Winner of three Academy Awards, this 1953 version of Titanic boasts stellar performances by Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck. One of the most fateful and foreboding stories ever committed to film, this version is by far the best cinematic treatment of the epic ocean disaster of 1912.

THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR

1947 • Gene Tierney, Rex Harrison, George Sanders

 

 This rarely seen film is one of the most haunting and cinematic romances ever filmed - ghost and all. Gene Tierney is perfect in her role as Lucy, a young widow. This is a very special movie one doesn't easily forget, and so well done - including a remarkable score by the venerable Bernard Herrmann. The Ghost and Mrs. Muir is pure artistry on film.

Would you spend the night in a bizarre home atop a horrific WWI battlefield? What if you were there with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff? The Black Cat is a true horror classic.

ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN

1948 • Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney, Bud Abbott, Lou Costello

 

This film may be a spoof, but it’s also an homage to the legendary monsters of Universal Studios.  The three monsters (Bela Lugosi as Dracula, Lon Chaney, Jr. as the Wolfman, and Glenn Strange as Frankenstein) play it straight, making the blend of comedy with horror so incredibly entertaining.  A must see for any horror fan - or comedy fan!

DRACULA

1931 • Bela Lugosi • Directed by Tod Browning

 

Bela Lugosi’s extraordinary performance made Dracula the most terrifying monster in movie history.  When first released, the film was known to make patrons faint in the theaters and have nightmares for years.  If you love scary movies, Dracula is either at the top of your list, or it will be after you see it this weekend at Old Town Music Hall.

FRANKENSTEIN

1931 • Boris Karloff

 

"It's Alive!" is a line that will live on forever as we recall the first moments of life for cinema’s most recognized and beloved monster of all time. Karloff's sympathetic performance evokes fear while also breaking our hearts. This film made him a huge star after years of working as an unknown actor.  Frankenstein is nothing less than a classic!

THE MUMMY

1932 • Boris Karloff

 

The Mummy is one of the most beloved films from Universal's classic horror period. Boris Karloff gives the film its resonance. Audiences in 1932 were frightened to death when Karloff opened his eyes for the first time. The Mummy is a true work of art that’s as much suspense thriller as it is horror.

THE INVISIBLE MAN

1933 • Claude Rains

 

With a brilliant performance by Claude Rains (often with only his voice), The Invisible Man gets better every time you watch it! In the 1930s, the special effects left audiences captivated. Even today we wonder how they did it without computers. Based on the H.G Wells classic story, this film is on everyone’s must-see list of horror/sci-fi classics.

THE WOLF MAN

1941 • Lon Chaney Jr. , Claude Rains

 

As the saying goes: “Even a man who is pure in heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright.” Lon Chaney Jr. stars in this horror masterpiece about a man who is attacked by a werewolf and then becomes one himself. Simply put: it’s one of the greats!
