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.

War of the Worlds (1953)

First, a novel by HG Wells written in 1898, it was performed and broadcast live on the RADIO as a Halloween episode on October 30, 1938, over the CBS radio network. The episode is famous for causing panic among its listening audience.

Earth is suddenly and unexpectedly invaded by Martians, and an American scientist searches for any weakness that can stop them.
