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!

STRANGER FROM VENUS / IMMEDIATE DISASTER

(USA, 1954) 75 minutes

Amid some reports of a UFO, a stranger arrives at a rural English inn. He has odd behavior, but otherwise looks normal. The ship that dropped him off caused a woman's car to crash, but he has miraculous healing powers, so she survives unhurt. The stranger finally tells everyone that he is there to prepare the way for messengers from the planet Venus. Everyone believes him, more or less. The government cordons off the area so that no one can get in to find out more, or get out to tell what they've seen. The government conspires to capture the returning Venusian ship when it comes to pick up the Stranger and deliver the official messengers.
