This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and other genre related films. Dining follows the movie. The legendary Greek hero leads a team of intrepid adventurers in a perilous quest for the legendary Golden Fleece. Jason has been prophesied to take the throne of Thessaly. When Jason saves Pelias from drowning, he does not recognize him as the man who killed his father. Pelias tells Jason to travel to Colchis to find the Golden Fleece. Jason follows his advice and assembles a sailing crew of the finest men in Greece, including Hercules. They are under the protection of Hera, queen of the gods. Their voyage is replete with battles against harpies, a giant bronze Talos, a hydra, and an animated skeleton army. Ray Harryhausen affects abound!
