The Space Beyond the Pines Film Fest

by The Staff on August 22, 2013


The evil geniuses of It Came From Schenectady are hosting another weird and wonderful film festival at the GE Theatre this Saturday. The Space Beyond the Pines brings together a collection of dystopian visions of the future and one hella good alien-invasion movie.

The festival is divided into two “blocks.” The fun begins with block one at 11:15 AM and Logan’s Run (starring Michael York and Jenny Agutter, pictured), a cheesy yet irresistible portrait of a carefree society where people can have sex whenever they want but must “renew” (i.e., die) when they turn 30. This is followed at 1:25 PM by Terry Gilliam’s much darker Brazil, and, at 4 PM, by Starcrash. The second block begins at 6 PM with a “surprise short film,” followed by Mel Gibson in Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (6:20 PM), Joss Whedon’s Serenity (8:15 PM) and Nick Frost in Attack the Block (10:25 PM).

The Space Beyond the Pines will be held Saturday (Aug. 24) at the GE Theatre at Proctors (432 State St., Schenectady). A full-day pass is $25; a half-day pass is $15. For more info, call 346-6204.
