Are you a fan of vintage SF (film and TV) of the '30's through late '60's? Would you like to get together with other local fans to watch & discuss your favorites?

This was the age of damsels in distress, pocket-change special effects, and those fabulous rubber monster suits. At the same time, such writers as Robert Heinlein, C.L. Moore, and Theodore Sturgeon crafted mature and contemplative screenplays for television and theater audiences. Come watch the best and worst from this era!

Major Dan Keller works for NORAD, in the computer control section. There, he programs complex machinery that watches the skies, constantly. The aliens need a window to bring in a great many saucers, so that they may establish a base on a remote island. To do that, they place one of their own as Dan Keller's new wife Laurie. She hypnotises Dan into replacing a crucial programming tape with one the aliens have prepared - one which will instruct NORAD's systems to ignore certain images.

A series of mischances leads an alien to kill a human doctor, and get arrested in the small town of Carterville, Wyoming. His alien friends bungle his rescue, and the entire town sees him go up in red flames! Now, the entire town understands that aliens have come to Earth.
