Celluloid Wednesday: “Things to Come”
7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 13
2 hour 10 minutes
A 1936 collaboration between writer H. G. Wells, producer Alexander Korda and designer and director William Cameron Menzies, “Things to Come” is a science fiction classic and a prescient political work that predicts a century of turmoil and progress. Skipping through time, “Things to Come” bears witness to world war, disease, dictatorship and utopia and was conceived, written and overseen by Wells himself as an adaptation of his own work. Celluloid Wednesdays is a midweek film series that offers audiences the chance to view celluloid film prints, historic narratives, documentaries, ethnographic and experimental films on the big screen. Presented in partnership with the Alaska Moving Image Preservation Association (AMIPA). Free; use the museum’s 7th Avenue entrance.
