Invaders from Mars + The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms
Invaders from Mars - 6.30PM / 1953 / PG / 78mins / D: William Cameron Menzies
Despite its low budget, Invaders’ clever use of special effects, camera angles and exaggerated cityscapes makes for a striking cinematic nightmare. NFSA 35mm print.
The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms - 8:00PM / 1953 / PG / 80mins / D: Eugène Lourié
This is the atomic era’s first ever monster movie, and the first solo feature project for stop-motion animation maestro Ray Harryhausen. NFSA 35mm print.
