Tickets are $6.

One of the best of the atomic age science fiction films, this 1956 story relies on neither giant mutant monsters nor bug-eyed aliens. Instead it combines intellect and action to consider the nature of mankind as it struggles to find its place in outer space. Walter Pidgeon plays Dr. Morbius, creator of Robbie the Robot but also keeper of a dark secret; Anne Francis provides classic ’50s sci-fi eye candy as his daughter, Altaira; and Leslie Nielsen, more than 30 years before his “Naked Gun” comedies, is the straight and serious spaceship captain out to solve the mystery, save the day, and get the girl.
