San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi
Saturday, October 26th, 2013
 7:00PM - 11:00PM (approx)

We're stretching our charter this month of screening films of those fabulous
rubber monster suits to a contemporary documentary about the actors INSIDE
those fabulous rubber monster suits!

MEN IN SUITS
(USA, 2012) 90 minutes

"Godzilla, Predator, Robby the Robot, the Gill Man - these are some of
the most iconic characters in cinema, but many people still don't know about
the incredible actors who bring these creatures to life. MEN IN SUITS shines
a long overdue light on an art that is getting lost in this age of computer
graphics."

MONSTERS FROM THE ID

(USA, 2009) 71 minutes
"The 1950's was an idealistic time in American History, filled with
hope, opportunity, and wonder. It was also, "The Atomic Age" where new
technology promised to both save humanity as well as put it in jeopardy. All
of these factors gave birth to one of the most prolific genres in film
history, 1950's Science Fiction Cinema. More than just bug eyed monsters and
little green men, 1950's Sci-fi Cinema provided science inspiration for
millions of eager youths across the country. Then after 1957 and the launch
of Sputnik, science fiction became science fact as an inspired population
worked toward one of the greatest achievements of mankind, spaceflight."
