The Invisible Boy (1957)

Rocket Sci-Fi! Admission only $3. Every film features an pre-movie introduction by series curator Steve Meyers.

From Steve himself: “Rocket Sci-Fi continues 2019 with our favorite theme: ROBOTS! We will be featuring classics like GOG (1954), Tobor the Great (1954), and the little-seen (ha!) Invisible Boy (1957) starring Robbie the Robot. Westworld (1973) and its sequel Futureworld (1976) are also in the mix. Come one, come all — droids and replicants are especially welcome.”

Timmie, a mischievous 10-year-old boy, is plopped in front of a supercomputer by his scientist father, Dr. Tom. The computer, however, secretly gives Timmie super-intelligence and he’s soon able to reanimate a robot named Robbie (of Forbidden Planet fame). Timmie and Robbie become best friends, embarking on a series of lighthearted pranks. But when Robbie starts taking orders from the evil supercomputer, Timmie must choose between his best friend and the safety of the world.
