In 20 Million Miles to Earth the first spaceship to Venus returns with an unexpected passenger: a Venusian in pupa form that grows into the rampaging giant "Ymir." Featuring the stop-motion talents of Ray Harryhausen, the film climaxes in a fantastic showdown between the military and the monster atop Rome’s Coliseum. (82 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the screening will move inside the center and start at 9 PM.
