San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi presents:
THE ASTOUNDING ADVENTURES OF BARON MÜNCHAUSEN

Saturday, October 27,[masked]:00pm - 11:00pm (approx)

BARON MÜNCHAUSEN’S DREAM
(France, 1911) 14 minutes

After an evening of excessive wining and dining Baron Münchausen must be helped to bed by his servants. Once asleep, he has bizarre and frightening dreams.

Also showing:

MÜNCHHAUSEN
(Germany, 1943) 110 minutes

Baron Hieronymus Münchhausen has just moved into the Bodenwerder castle once owned by his famous namesake ancestor, and he’s throwing a masquerade to celebrate his homecoming. A few of the guests stick around after the party breaks up, and remarkably enough, none of them are conversant with the legend of their host’s forebear beyond that he was supposed to have been the biggest liar who ever lived. Not so, says the baron, who then gathers everyone into the garden to hear the incredible yet true story of the original Hieronymus Münchhausen’s adventures.

Also showing:

THE FABULOUS BARON MÜNCHAUSEN
(aka: Baron Prásil)
(Czechoslovakia, 1962) 83 minutes

The stories of Baron Münchhausen were enriched with a character of a modern astronaut Tommy and compare two different worlds - the world of a rococo cavalier whose fantasy does not have any limits and the world of a young man of the present time. The astronaut finds on the moon the famous dreamer Baron Münchhausen, who takes him back to earth and a variety of exaggerated adventures. Amusing variation on the old stories, using live action against deliberately artificial backgrounds.
