70mm Film Festival: The Ultimate Edition at the Music Box Theatre

February 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - March 10, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

| 11.00 - for CNSC Members

The Music Box is about to embark upon its biggest 70mm festival yet. Thousands of pounds of film will be shipped across the country, all to provide the most immersive viewing experience possible in the best prints available. Sit back, relax, turn your phone off, throw away your worries, and let a sea of color and light wash over you – this is the way movies were meant to be seen.

Some Science Fiction specific films include…

BRAINSTORM stars Christopher Walken and Louise Fletcher who have developed a revolutionary device to record and vicariously experience other people’s feelings. When the invention is sold to the military, they must keep it from getting into the wrong hands.

KRULL stars Ken Marshall who has inherited a kingdom under siege by the evil Beast, and not only has to rid the land of the monster, but he has to rescue his bride Lyssa from the Beast’s clutches.

STARMAN stars Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen who begin a relationship when his spacecraft is shot down over the distraught young widows remote Wisconsin cabin, and he clones the form of her dead husband. The alien convinces her to join him on a life-or-death mission while government agents are hot on their trail.
