Top Ten SF Movies

We had hoped to show all ten of the "Top Ten SF Movies of the 20th Century" but we were unable to obtain "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" in large format film. Please check the Daily Newsletter and Information Desk for times those two are showing on video.
