Rocket Sci-Fi Matinees

Rocket Sci-Fi

Rocket Sci-Fi’s traditional time-sphere will always be the 1950s and 1960s, but our new theme required some benevolent time-travel, cinematically speaking.

Feminist Sci-Fi will run through the first half of 2019 and will feature films with feminist heroes. We are looking at The Handmaid’s Tale (1990) adapting Margaret Atwood, Born In Flames (1983) featuring a revolution led by women, Tank Girl (1995) starring Lori Petty as the post-apocalyptic heroine, Aliens (1986) with Sigourney Weaver as the mighty Ellen Ripley, Conceiving Ada (1997) with Tilda Swinton as mathematical genius Ada Lovelace, and Mad Max Fury Road (2015) which gives us Charlize Theron as the incredible Furiosa.

It’s an exciting start to the year and still $3 per show. Thanks for your Rocket Sci-Fi fandom and see you at the movies!
