About the Event
Science Fiction Films are usually scientific, visionary, imaginative, and usually presented through unique
settings, advanced technology (i.e., robots and spaceships), scientific developments, or by the use of fantastic
special effects. Sci-Fi films are complete with heroes, shadowy villains, and unknown or inexplicable forces.
Quite a few examples of science-fiction cinema owe their origins to writers Jules Verne and H.G. Wells.
The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
An alien lands in Washington, D.C. and tells the people of Earth that they must live peacefully or be
destroyed as a danger to other planets.
