Earth Vs the Flying Saucers 50s Sci-Fi Classic
Sooooooo, Classic is a word with many definitions. On Rotten Tomatoes this has a 71% Critic Score and a 55% Audience Score. So maybe it's not a good classic, but it sure is a fun one. The movie Mars Attacks was pretty much a lampoon of this movie, which it itself doesnt need to be lampooned. It's hokey, silly 1950s Sci-Fi Fun. Hugh Marlowe plays scientist Russell Marvin, who is on-hand when an alien spacecraft lands on earth. The saucermen at first insist that they've come in peace, but Marvin suspects otherwise. Sure enough, the visitors eventually declare their intention to take over the earth within the next 60 days, adding that the military's weapons are useless against them. The two-month window gives Marvin and his cohorts plenty of time to build-up superweapon, and thus stave off the seven-saucer invasion force. Special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen does a nice job laying waste to Washington DC in the film's memorable finale. The supporting cast of Earth vs. the Flying Saucers includes those two sci-fi flick stalwarts of the 1950s, Morris Ankrum and Thomas Browne Henry Grab the popcorn and a friend for Classic Movie Night at Loganberry Books, every 3rd Thursday at 7 p.m. Relive the glory days of the silver screen... no ticket required!

What we're about

Public Group

Declare your independence from the multiplexes and see an independent, foreign classic, documentary or any thought provoking movie. We meet at landmarks like the Cedar Lee, Cinematheque, Art Museum, or a university and work in dinner at a locally owned restaurant either before or afterward. Perhaps the best part is walking to a local pub and engaging others on the film's true meaning.

Cost to attend: $1.50 per movie or $5 for the year. Your first movie with the group is free. Fees are waived for active assistant organizers of this group or for organizers of other meetups who are funding another meetup site.
