A must see for fans of classic science fiction and film buffs!
Bedford Playhouse is proud to present the 4K restoration of the sci-fi classic Invaders from Mars, followed by a presentation and Q&A with the film’s restorer Scott MacQueen.
Fearful memories of this timeless 1953 bone-chiller still haunt the dreams of fans who have never forgotten the story of a young boy who witnesses an alien invasion. It’s since become a modern classic and was also one of two early 50s classic alien-invasion science fiction films (the other is Robert Wise’s The Day the Earth Stood Still) reflecting Cold War tensions, the Red Scare and paranoid anxiety typical of many films in the 50s.
“This stunning 4K restoration will make even those who’ve seen the film umpteen times feel like they’re seeing it for the very first time but through magical new eyes.” – Multiple Visual Effects Academy-Award Winner, Robert Skotak (Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgement Day).
