Secular Hub Movie Night: The Man From Earth

Renowned sci-fi writer Jerome Bixby penned the script for this thought-provoking film starring David Lee Smith as John Oldman, a college professor who reveals to his colleagues that he's actually a centuries-old caveman. And so begins a captivating philosophical meditation on immortality, the last work from screenwriter Bixby, who earned career accolades for his contributions to such genre-defining shows as "Star Trek" and "The Twilight Zone."

Secular Hub members are invited to hang out and watch a movie on our BIG screen at the Secular Hub on Thursday nights! Drinks, snacks, and popcorn will be available for sale. Doors will be open at 6:00pm and the movie will begin at 7:00pm.

Movies will sometimes have a secular theme, sometimes they'll just be things we all vote on and want to see. We will update individual events with the movie when available.

This is a recurring weekly event, subject to other secular events that require the Secular Hub space. We'll make sure to update the meetup each week with the movie selection and notify when they are cancelled.

Note: Secular Hub meetings such as movie night are open only to dues paying members of the Secular Hub. Sign up on line at http://www.secularhub.org/membership/ or in person at the Hub.

    A fascinating movie. The anger that was generated when people felt their beliefs were being undermined seemed to show typical defense mechanisms.

      But then there was also that wonderful subtle subtext of the characters WANTING to believe him, wanting to discover something amazing. We are a conflicted lot!

      One or two people wanted to believe him. They were the ones that were not angry at what they perceived as a monstrous deception.

    Is there some reason why we are only given the title of this movie, like we should know what it is about?
