Join us as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing with two Doctor Who episodes, The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon. Featuring the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith), Amy (Karen Gillian), Rory (Arthur Darvill) and River Song (Alex Kingston), the Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon see Team TARDIS joined by FBI agent Canton Everett Delaware III (Mark Sheppard) as together they battle an invasion of Earth and employ the ultimate weapon in the form of Neil Armstrong's foot. Partially filmed on location at Lone Rock, Utah, The Impossible Astronaut marks the first time in Doctor Who that principal photography took place in the United States. The preshow starts at 7:00 and the episodes begin screening at 7:30. Come decked out in your Whovian finery and join us for a fantastic evening! This is a private meeting for our members, but feel free to bring your friends. (The more, the merrier!) As always, there is no charge for attending our regular Rialto screenings! If you RSVP and later find that you are unable to attend, please change your status so we can plan accordingly. Many of you have been doing this and it has helped tremendously, as we base our theater reservations on the number of people signed up to attend approximately one week prior to the showing.

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A SPECIAL TICKETED FATHOM EVENT WHICH REQUIRES A TICKET PURCHASE. THE LINK IS BELOW THE DESCRIPTION. It’s hard to believe that it’s been nearly ten years since David Tennant left Doctor Who in his heart-breaking finale “The End of Time”. To commemorate the occasion, BBC Studios and Fathom Events invite you to relive the agony and ecstasy of this absolutely thrilling story on the big screen. You’ll see the full two-part “The End of Time” including appearances by fan favourites Billie Piper, Catherine Tate, John Simm, Elisabeth Sladen, John Barrowman, which ties in with our ongoing celebration of Captain Jack. In “The End of Time,” the Doctor’s psychotic nemesis the Master (Simm) has been reborn. Reunited with his friend Wilfred Mott (Bernard Cribbins), the Doctor desperately tries to locate the Master only to find that an even greater danger is approaching. As a terrible shadow falls across the entire universe, an ancient trap closes around the Earth. With the sound of drums growing louder, the Doctor and Wilf must fight alone. But sacrifices must be made, and a deadly prophecy looms: “He will knock four times.” The evening will also feature a brand new interview with David Tennant. Due to renovation plans, the Rialto wasn't able to book this event, so we'll be going to the newly-renovated Bijou for this special event.

Join us for the next Doctor Who night as we continue tracing the complicated, convoluted story of Captain Jack Harkness, from his Doctor Who appearances, into and Torchwood and then back to the Whoniverse. In the Hugo nominated Torchwood episode, "Captain Jack Harkness", we'll find out how our favorite Time Agent from the future got his identity as we slip back into the past with Jack and fellow Torchwood agent Toshiko Sato (who should look a bit familiar!). Keep a sharp eye out for DW references in the background! The second episode we'll be viewing is Torchwood's "End of Days". Continuing from the events of "Captain Jack Harkness", the episode involves the time-travelling clock seller Bilis Manger manipulating members of Torchwood into opening a rift in time and space which would cause the release of the demon Abaddon. The episode received three 2008 BAFTA Cymru award nominations and ties in to the beginning of the Doctor Who episode "Utopia". The preshow starts at 7:00 and the episodes begin screening at 7:30. Come decked out in your Whovian finery and join us for a fantastic evening! This is a private meeting for our members, but feel free to bring your friends. (The more, the merrier!)
