      San Diego Vintage Sci-Fi
      Saturday, April 20, 2013
       7:00PM - 11:00PM (approx)

      THE TIME MACHINE
      (USA, 1960) 103 minutes

          "On January 5, 1900, a disheveled looking H.G. Wells - George to his
      friends - arrives late to his own dinner party. He tells his guests of his
      travels in his Time Machine, the work about which his friends knew. They
      were unbelieving and skeptical of any practical use if it did indeed work.
      George knew that his machine was stationary in geographic position, but he
      did not account for changes in what happens over time to that location. He
      also learns that the machine is not impervious and he is not immune to those
      who do not understand him or the machine's purpose. George tells his friends
      that he did not find the Utopian society he so wished had developed. He
      mentions specifically a civilization several thousand years into the future
      which consists of the subterranean Morlocks and the surface-dwelling Eloi,
      who on first glance lead a carefree life."

      Also Showing:

      BIOGRAPHY: H.G. WELLS - TIME TRAVELLER
      (USA, 1995) 44 minutes

      "In classic novels like The Time Machine, The War of the Worlds and The
      Invisible Man, he practically invented science fiction. But those seminal
      works were just a small part of his life. H.G. Wells wrote over 160 books
      covering fields from fiction to history to political commentary. In his day
      he was one of the most famous and influential thinkers in the world. Through
      extensive use of his writings and interviews with leading scholars,
      BIOGRAPHY presents the complete story of H.G. Wells. Discover the startling
      range of predictions he made forecasting everything from chemical warfare
      and the atom bomb to computer chips and modern birth control! And see how
      his vision of the future darkened as he aged and the horrors of World War II
      threatened to put an end to his hopes for humanity. This is a revealing look
      at the life of "the man who invented tomorrow."
