Hillsdale, NJ 07642
This group meets on the first Tuesday of each month to view SF and other
genre related films.
Join us for a special 35th Anniversary viewing of Fast Times At
Ridgemont High. Amy Heckerling's adaptation of Cameron Crowe's
Fast Times at Ridgemont High is often considered one of the finest
films of a disreputable genre, and kick-started the careers of many
future stars. Many of those stars are genre favorites! Fast Times stars
everyone's favorite martian Ray Walston. Forest Whitaker as seen in
Arrival and Rogue One. Even a cameo with Nicholas Cage - Ghost
|Star Trek: the Animated Series
Our follow-up theme got off to a great start with Star Trek: The Animated Series. We began
with the making of the Star Trek Animated Series. Interesting and informative. We followed
that by showing the first three episodes:
Beyond the Farthest Star
One of our planets Is Missing.
Considering the episodes ran 22-24 minutes each, they were very well done, and felt
complete. Enjoyable and fun series.
Conversation continued by all attendees at the Ridge Diner. Fun evening.
|Time Tunnel (1966)
February's theme is Changing Channels - TV and how it has influenced culture and more
specifically, genre. We started off the month by showing the first two episodes of the
1966-67 television show Time Tunnel. It only ran for 30 episodes, but it's kind of a cult
classic. Campy and a lot of fun. The premise is, "While conducting an experiment in time
travel, scientists Dr. Tony Newman and Dr. Douglas Phillips find themselves whisked from
time period to time period, while their colleagues back in the present desperately struggle to
retrieve the two men." Much later, Quantum Leap had a similar premise.
Conversation continued at the Ridge Diner. Enjoyable evening.
