Science Fiction Festival at Cinerama

Cinerama has just announced its second annual Science Fiction Festival, to take place May 1-12 and to feature more than three dozen science fiction classics. A highlight: the world premiere of a new short film called “UFOTOG,” from Douglas Trumbull, the visual-effects wizard behind such films as “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” and “Blade Runner.” The film will screen on a special digital projector, and will demonstrate Trumbull’s new cinemagic language, MAGI. Trumbull will be attending the festival and doing an audience Q&A, as will Jonathan Frakes (“Star Trek: First Contact”), Tom Skerritt (observing the 35th anniversary of “Alien”), and Sam. J. Jones (“Flash Gordon”). Other films featured in the festival include “War of the Worlds” (Paul Allen’s 2012 refreshed new print), “Forbidden Planet,” “Dune,” “Brazil,” “Logan’s Run,” and many more. For more information, visit Cinerama’s website: www.cinerama.com.
