Sci-fi Film Fest at the Heights Theater

Step off Tom Cruise! The original Martians are here!

The venerable Heights Theater on the west side (MPLS), is hosting a slew of great sci-fi flicks (the original versions) in their Before CGI: Six Sci-Fi Classics series.

Run Dana, my fans are relentless!
If you're in the Twin Cities you can't beat the Heights for a better days-of-glory movie experience.

The series is run by, the same laudable and beloved movie minds behind my favorite indy theater, the Trylon, which some of you may recall screened an awesome series of Ray Harryhausen flicks just last spring. Unlike that series, I'm going to miss everyone of these because they're on Monday nights, which is the same as my night class **sobs/wailing**.

Tonight's show is a DOUBLE FEATURE of the War of the Worlds (1953) and Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956). Invasion stars the recently passed Kevin McCarthy, so it's a fitting tribute that his best-known role gets such a swank screening.

The series includes:
I'm jealous of anyone who gets out to see these--and in a place that still sports chandeliers and a Wurlitzer that rises through the stage no less!
