      Hi, All:

      Two free Sci-Fi movie screenings this weekend:

      __________
      __________


      The Mars Society-San Diego's Mars Movie Night
      Friday, November 15th, 2013
      7:00pm

      MARS MOVIE NIGHT: MARS ON TELEVISION

      Three episodes from different television series dealing with the Red Planet
      Mars.

      THE WEST WING: LIFE ON MARS (2003)
      A parking spot covered in mayonnaise, a 22-year old clerk, and an office
      in the steam pipe trunk distribution venue seem to be the worst aspects of
      Republican lawyer Joe Quincy's first day on the job -- until CJ dumps a
      seemingly silly press inquiry about life on Mars into his lap.

      STARHUNTER: FAMILY VALUES (2001)
      The year is 2275. Bounty Hunter Dante Montana and his ragtag crew are
      commissioned to track and capture dangerous interplanetary criminals,
      including an evil force Dante believes kidnapped his son. Hunting a pair of
      con artists on Mars, Dante and Luc encounter a Raider with a boy who may be
      Dante's kidnapped son. Percy becomes trapped in Dante's virtual reality
      device, which simulates his dead wife, Penny.

      THE OUTER LIMITS: PHOBOS RISING (1998)
      For 30 years there has been a fragile truce between the Free Alliance
      and the Coalition of Middle-Eastern and Pacific States, both on Earth and on
      Mars. Both groups mine triradium, a super-powerful radioactive mineral that
      can be used for both power and illegally for weapons. When a giant explosion
      appears to consume the Earth and sends a giant shock-wave towards Mars, the
      soldiers at the Free Alliance base on the Red Planet wonder if the truce has
      come to an end. Cut off from Earth for 12 hours as Mars rotates, Colonel
      Samantha Elliot believes someone from the Coalition has been smuggling
      triradium. With communications temporarily out of order and a Coalition
      drone approaching the Alliance base, Elliot prepares to launch a preemptive
      strike.
