Join us at noon for libations on the patio!

In an era when Eisenhower campaigned the terrestrial western front, a certain Starship C-57D made its way into our intergalactic hearts in Forbidden Planet, the mid-century harbinger of countless cinematic science fictions yet to come. Prepare to reverse polarity and set sail to the interstellar skies of planet Altair IV with Commander John J. Adams — a fresh-faced Leslie Nielsen! — as he and his crew navigate some seriously vivacious production design, the wonders of the great Krell machine, and the sentient consciousness of Robby the Robot, the first cognitive android in filmic history. Open your ear-holes to the electronic tonalities of Louis and Bebe Barron, whose lush soundscape marks the advent of the entirely electronic soundtrack. Leave Earth behind and join us for the perfect blend of cosmic cocktails and the definitive Technicolor sci-fi experience.

Dir. Fred M. Wilcox, 1956, 35mm, 98 min.
