Description

Rocket Sci-Fi! Admission only $3. Every film features an pre-movie introduction by series curator Steve Meyers. From Steve himself: "Rocket Sci-Fi continues 2019 with our favorite theme: ROBOTS! We will be featuring classics like GOG (1954), Tobor the Great (1954), and the little-seen (ha!) Invisible Boy (1957) starring Robbie the Robot. Westworld (1973) and its sequel Futureworld (1976) are also in the mix. Come one, come all -- droids and replicants are especially welcome." A young boy's beloved companion, the robot Tobor, is kidnapped by nefarious communists who wish to change him into a force for evil. This sci-fi adventure, aimed towards a children's audience, follows the boy's effort to save his friend from the communists' villainous clutches.
