Count Gore presents FORBIDDEN PLANET

Join us for some creepy good fun when local TV legend Count Gore De Vol (Dick Dyszel) returns to present another cult favorite in the spirit of the original CREATURE FEATURE broadcasts, including vintage clips from the Count's vault and some interactive fun and games.

Everyone's favorite 1950s sci-fi knockoff of Shakespeare's "The Tempest" — characters in a remote setting contending with a superpowered adversary and his minions — is significant for a number of screen "firsts," including its groundbreaking depiction of faster-than-light-speed travel; its exclusively electronic score by Bebe and Louis Barron; and the iconic Robbie the Robot, a full-fledged character and a great leap forward in popular conceptions of AI. A major influence on sci-fi for generations to come — STAR TREK creator Gene Roddenberry acknowledges its influence — the film made the Library of Congress' National Film Registry in 2013. DIR Fred M. Wilcox; SCR Cyril Hume; PROD Nicholas Nayfack. U.S., 1956, color, 98 min. NOT RATED
