Space is the place at our next Cinema a Go-Go, when the Retro Cocktail Hour presents a pair of swashbuckling sci-fi classics from the 1950s.
We'll be screening This Island Earth, an eye-popping space opera from 1955 with interplanetary warfare, flying saucers and bug-eyed monsters. Also on the bill, Forbidden Planet - inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest and a major influence on many sci-fi films and TV shows to follow, including Star Trek.
Join us at Liberty Hall in downtown Lawrence, Friday, March 6. Doors open 6:30 p.m., first film at 7 p.m. Tickets at the door.
