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.
