      CORRECTION: Two Free Sci-Fi Movies this Weekend NOTE: Dates corrected.  Sorry about that.  :-J


      Hi, All:

      Two free Sci-Fi movie screenings this weekend:

      __________

      The Mars Society-San Diego's Mars Movie Night
      Friday, August 17, 2012
      7:00pm

      JOHN CARTER
      (USA, 2012) 132 minutes HD

          "One minute, dozing Civil War veteran John Carter is evading Apaches in
      a deserted cave. The next, he's waking up on Mars, a once-Earthlike planet
      that's devolved into chaos -- and civil war of a different sort. Based on
      Edgar Rice Burroughs's classic "Barsoom Series," this sci-fi adventure finds
      Carter coming to the aid of Martian princess Dejah Thoris and pitching in to
      help protect the planet."

          “The Bebop crew hunts for Chessmaster Hex, the rumored mastermind behind
      a series of robberies at hyperspace gate tollbooths. However, while trying
      to dig up dirt on their target, they unearth some very valuable data
      regarding the gate accident that devastated Earth fifty years earlier.”

      San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi
      Saturday, August 18, 2012
       7:00PM - 11:00PM (approx)

      IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE
      (USA, 1953) 81 minutes

          "John Putnam is a writer and an amateur stargazer with a new home out in
      the beautiful Arizona desert, which he enjoys with Ellen Fields, his
      girlfriend and a local schoolteacher. John is not trusted by the people of
      the small town near where he lives, certainly not by Sheriff Matt Warren,
      who feels protective of Ellen, and perhaps something more. One night, John
      and Ellen see a meteor crash in the desert. John drags his friend, Pete, out
      of bed to take him over to the crash site in his helicopter. Once there,
      John climbs down into the crater. Unfortunately, he does so alone, as Pete
      and Ellen wait for him. John is the only one who sees the spaceship before a
      landslide covers it. And John is the only one who catches a glimpse of the
      hideous thing inside. At first John's story seems mad, until some of the
      townsfolk begin acting strange - as if they aren't really who they seem to
      be."
