San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi meeting.

Studio 106
The Art Union Building
2323 Broadway
San Diego, CA 92102
[masked]

We'll start with Episode 2 of "Quatermass", and then dive into Fritz Lang's landmark 1929 silent film "Woman in the Moon":

"It's the granddaddy of all rocket trip movies and is noted for its realism about rockets; the moon, not so much. Pioneer rocket scientist Hermann Oberth was a technical advisor." - Dave Rankin

The evening will conclude with "Radar Men" part 2: did Commando Cody survive moon-man Retik's raygun blast? Will he escape to warn Earth?

The main feature is nearly 3 hours long, so we'll start the films *promptly* at 7. If you arrive late, be sure to knock loudly!

Bring your ideas for our future viewing schedule; suggestions for both specific movies and general themes are equally welcome.

And feel free to also bring snacks for sharing!

MAILING LIST: If you haven't already, you're invited to join our e-mail discussion/announcement list! See our web page for instructions.

Questions? Drop an e-mail to Adam Tilghman, [address removed].
