      TMS-SD MARS MOVIE NIGHT -- THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO (1966)

      In 2065,the Zero-X spacecraft launches from Glenn Field as the first attempt
      at a manned mission to Mars. Unknown to Captain Paul Travers and his crew of
      two astronauts and two scientists, criminal mastermind The Hood has
      infiltrated the ship to photograph Zero-X's wing mechanism. When his foot
      becomes trapped in the hydraulics, The Hood causes a systems failure and
      Zero-X loses control. While the villain manages to extract his bloodied foot
      and parachute from the undercarriage, Travers and his crew eject in an
      escape pod and Zero-X crashes into the ocean before leaving Earth's
      atmosphere. In 2067, at the conclusion of an investigation into the loss of
      Zero-X, the Inquiry Board of the Space Exploration Center reaches a verdict
      of sabotage. In the meantime, a second Mars mission has been planned. Days
      before the launch of the new Zero-X, International Rescue agrees to a
      request to organise security in view of the possibility of another sabotage
      threat.

      We'll also generally show Episode #5 of the COWBOY BEBOP anime series.

      THE OUTER LIMITS -- 3 EPISODES (USA, 1963) 150 minutes

      "THE ARCHITECTS OF FEAR"
      A secret group of scientists decide to surgically alter one of their members
      into an 'alien', in order to convince the world that an alien invasion is
      imminent. They hope that such a threat will force all governments to make
      peace with one another. However such a complex plan has many
      vulnerabilities... including the pregnant wife of the volunteer.

      "THE SIXTH FINGER"
      A scientist experimenting with speeding up human evolution, hires on
      uneducated, but bright Gwyllim, from the nearby Welsh mining town. He proves
      a devoted lab assistant, but not content to stick to animal subjects,
      Gwyllim speeds up his own evolution, becoming a super genius with 6 fingers
      and a huge cranium. With such mental powers does the rebellious, former coal
      miner acquire equivalent wisdom and maturity too?

      'THE MAN WHO WAS NEVER BORN"
      Earth awaits a terrible fate in the far future, so a 20th Century astronaut
      and a typically hideously malformed future Earthling go back in time hoping
      to change history. They target a beautiful young woman just before she gives
      birth to the scientist who created the bio-warfare agent which ravages the
      future Earth and all humans. But how can the repulsive Andro succeed when
      he's likely to be shot on sight?

      Also Showing:

      SUPERMAN Serial Episode #6 (USA, 1948)

      SD Space Movie Night ­ I AIM FOR THE STARS

      SUN, FEB 27, 2011
      5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
      Location: Space Travelers Emporium, 1947 30th St. San Diego, CA 92102

      Get together with other SD Space members to watch this month¹s Space Movie
      Night feature ­ ³I Aim for the Stars². We¹ll be watching this outstanding
      film on the BIG screen.

      The career of rocket scientist Wernher von Braun (Curt Jurgens) is the
      focus of this film. Supposedly bullied by the Nazis into working for the
      Third Reich, the end of the war leaves the rocket man with a decision to
      take his talents to either Russia or the United States. He chooses the U.
      S., but controversy follows the gifted scientist wherever he goes. Some
      resent his collaborations with the Nazis, while others in the government
      are more than willing to turn their heads in deference to his genius.

      1960 Rated-G 106 minutes

      Popcorn provided. You¹re welcome to bring any other snacks and
      [non-alcoholic] drinks to share.

      Members and the public are welcome to attend. Email events@... to
