NEXT MEETING:

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) 52 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."
