Flying Saucer Cinema   

This classic science fiction film appreciation class showcases beloved films that cry out for viewing in a group setting the way they were first presented to the world. Each week will bring something new, films ranging from Golden Age sci-fi of the 1950s and 60s to the dystopian science fiction of the 1970s and occasional forays beyond. Co-hosts Eric Cohen and Mark Daniels will be your guides and provide you with film information, trivia, and lively post-screening discussions every week. We kick off the winter quarter with Donovan’s Brain, the granddaddy of evil brain movies, starring Nancy Davis. (Yes, that Nancy Davis.) Next up is The Planet of the Apes, the first of three dystopian sci-fi films starring Charlton Heston. After that we have Panic in the Zero! with Academy Award winner Ray Milland and teen idol Frankie Avalon. (Generation gap or what?) We wrap the quarter up with super cool This Island Earth, the summer blockbuster of 1955. Whether you are a seasoned science fiction film buff or simply want to put your head in a different place for a couple of hours every week, this will be an engaging, fun adventure of a class you won't want to miss.
