Things to Come: The Birth of Sci-Fi Cinema

REPERTORY SERIES!

A YEAR OF SCIENCE FICTION

FRIDAY, JANUARY 24 – THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 2020

Kicking off our “Year of Sci-Fi,” we offer this brief survey of science-fiction filmmaking from the dawn of cinema up until 1949. Although most pre-1950 sci-fi was centered on mad scientists (and we’ve got our share below) and serial heroes, there are plenty of landmarks to see here, from silent classics, to famous monsters of filmland, to grand visions of faraway planets and distant times.
