Now that the California Independent Film Festival is over it is time for Sci Fi Day 2 at the Rheem Theatre on Saturday, Oct. 3. This fun-filled day of classic 1950s Sci Fi films will include a special guest appearance by Ann Robinson from "War of the Worlds." Robinson will be inducted into the Classic Film Hall of Fame as well as the film.
The amazing lineup of films includes:
1:30 p.m. - "It Came from Outer Space" (1953)
A spaceship from another world crashes in the Arizona desert, and only an amateur stargazer (Richard Carlson) and a schoolteacher (Barbara Rush) suspect an alien influence when the local townsfolk begin to act strange. "It Came from Outer Space" is based on the story by Sci Fi legend, Ray Bradbury.

3:30 p.m. - "Thing from Another World" (1951)
Scientists and American Air Force officials fend off a bloodthirsty alien organism while they are stationed at a remote arctic outpost. James Arness, from the classic television show Gunsmoke, appears in the movie as "The Thing."

6:15 p.m. - "Forbidden Planet" (1956)
A starship crew goes to investigate the silence of a planet's colony only to find two survivors and a deadly secret that one of the survivors has. The movie stars two-time Oscar nominee Walter Pidgeon ("Madame Curie," "Mrs. Miniver"), Golden Globe winner Anne Francis ("Honey West") and two-time Emmy nominee Leslie Nielson ("Police Squad!").
Do not miss the appearance of a very special robot at the Rheem!

8:30 p.m. - "War of the Worlds" (1953)
The film adaptation of the H.G. Wells story, told on radio of the invasion of Earth by Martians, stars Golden Globe winner Gene Barry ("Burke's Law") and special guest Ann Robinson. "War of the Worlds" and Robinson will be inducted into the Classic Film Hall of Fame prior to the screening of the film.
Also, during the day there will be a special "laser gun" on display at the museum. For a donation to the Classic Film Hall of Fame and Museum, moviegoers will have the opportunity to be photographed with the "laser gun" and our special guest robot. Do not miss out on this fun-filled Sci Fi Day.
