Full steam ahead! I'll be co-hosting a double feature Steampunk movie night.
If you are not familiar with Steampunk, it's an alternate history set in Victorian times but with technology, airships, robots, etc. often with supernatural elements.
I'll be showing "Steamboy" first, which is a 2004 Steampunk anime (I'm showing the English version). The cast includes (voices): Anna Paquin, Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina, Kari Wahlgren, etc.
Then we'll take a short break and then we'll launch into "Hugo". Released in 2011, it's based on the book, "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" and stars Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game), Ben Kingsley, Sasha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, etc. Set in the 1930's, the main character, Hugo Cabret, is a 12 year old boy who lives in the walls of a Parisian railway station and mends clocks.
Please feel free to bring food and drinks, particularly Steampunk themed. For some inspiration and information, check out these links:
Feel free to dress up Steampunk too, if you are so inclined. You can go simply and wear a top hat and/or goggles or perhaps some gears and octopus jewelry.
I'm bringing chocolate gears!
Please write down what you would like to bring. If you aren't sure yet, just put down "appetizer", "side", etc.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I can be reached at: [masked] or[masked]-1396.
