INVADERS FROM MARS

(1953, William Cameron Menzies) Nightmare vision of alien invasion seen through the eyes of a small boy – a triumph of low-budget stylized production design. Original 35mm Cinecolor print. Approx 79 min.
2:10, 5:20, 8:30

“Menzies emulates Norman Rockwell’s tones and compositions, then twists them, creating a Twilight Zone atmosphere… [His] suggestions of people falling into a whirling sand pit are eerier than anything in Tobe Hooper’s remake.”
– Michael Sragow, The New Yorker

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

(1933, Norman Z. McLeod) Charlotte Henry’s Alice slides down the rabbit hole to meet, among many others, Cary Grant’s Mock Turtle, Gary Cooper’s White Knight, Edward Everett Horton’s Mad Hatter, May Robson’s Queen of Hearts... and W.C. Fields’ Humpty Dumpty. Menzies based his character designs on the original Tenniel drawings. 35mm. Approx 76 min.
