SciFi July Returns!

With the problems involved with the flooding in Montpelier last month, I was a little afraid that we might not see this again this year. But, the Savoy Theater’s website has just been updated with news and a schedule for what will be screening later next month.

Rather than spreading several films over the course July, the theater will be screening ten films over two days, July 30th through the 31st. On the docket? A great linup of films from all over the last couple of decades: Frankenstein, The Invisible Man, Soylent Green, Sleeper, Escape from New York, Robinson Crusoe on Mars, Quatermass & The Pit, Things to Come, Renassance and Road Warrior.

Here’s the timing:

Saturday, July 30th:
Noon ~ Frankenstein (1931)
2pm ~ The Invisible Man (1933)
4pm ~ Soylent Green (1973)
6pm ~ Sleeper (1973)
8pm ~ Escape From New York (1981)

Sunday, July 31st:
Noon ~ Robinson Crusoe on Mars (1964)
2pm ~ Quatermass & the Pit (1967)
4pm ~ Things to Come (1936)
6pm ~ Renaissance (2006)
8pm ~ The Road Warrior (1981)

Apparently, prizes will be given out to those who stay for the entire thing. We’re excited.

  1. I love Quatermass and the Pit. Its British sci-fi serial roots and placing the scientifically fantastic in then-contemporary London speaks to my enduring fondness for Doctor Who. Highly recommended to anyone thinking about peeking in at the Savoy marathon.

    • Of all the films, that’s the one that I didn’t recognize – I don’t think that I’ve heard of that. There’s a bunch of films there that I’d like to make it to, although I don’t know that I’ll be able to see the entire run.

      • It originally released in America as Five Million Years to Earth. I first ran across on cable under that name and later found out it was part of a series of adaptations of the Quatermass television serials.

  3. Andrew,

    Thanks for posting this schedule – when last I checked the Savoy site I only saw the 2010 schedule and feared there would be no SciFi July! I hope to be able to see at least a few of these!

    • My pleasure – it’s something that I was checking up on as well: I was worried that it wouldn’t come out this year!
