Secular Hub Movie Night: Planet of the Apes (original)

The movie for Thursday, September 26 is the 1968 original Planet of the Apes. Taylor and two other astronauts come out of deep hibernation to find that their ship has crashed. Escaping with little more than clothes they find that they have landed on a planet where men are pre-lingual and uncivilized while apes have learned speech and technology. Taylor is captured and taken to the city of the apes after damaging his throat so that he is silent and cannot communicate with the apes.

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 or in person at the Hub.

    Apart perhaps from the first 10 minutes, this film holds up extremely well over the decades. By 30 minutes in it was gripping, and mostly stayed that way.

    Earlier today someone posted a comment on this thread (since deleted) that some people found offensive. While we do not monitor or officiate the meetup discussion forum, we do regret the situation and want to assure our members that we strive to make the Hub a place where everyone feels welcome, safe, and respected for who they are.

    While perhaps preaching to our choir, the movie likely fell on deaf ears to many in the public. In retrospect, this is an archaeological treasure for the enlightened 1960's ear. Yet the religion consuming public is still in the dark ages, now wanting to accept all the insights that evolution is still providing. Quite interesting to see.

    Bummer, I love Planet of the Apes, and I have to work.
