The Mars Society's
THIS WEEK IN SAN DIEGO
Sunday, February 1, 2009
The San Diego Sci-Fi Double Feature film group will
screen two underwater films: VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA" (1961) and THE ABYSS" (1989).
"VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA": Admiral
Nelson takes a brand new atomic submarine through
its paces. When the Van Allen radiation belt catches
fire, the admiral must find a way to beat the heat or
watch the world go up in smoke.
"THE ABYSS": An American nuclear submarine is
attacked (during the cold war) and crashes underwater.
The navy asks the workers of a nearby underwater oil
rig who are joined by a number of navy SEALS to locate
and investigate the cause of the crash. As the crew
embark on their mission, they encounter a number of
difficulties and discover that they may not be alone.
There is something else down there.
Showtime is at 3:00pm for "VOYAGE TO THE
BOTTOM OF THE SEA" and 5:00pm for "THE ABYSS"
at Studio 106 in the Art Union Building at 2323
