Mars Attacks!

(Tim Burton, 1996)

Thu, Aug 14, 2014 8 PM

Inspired by the 1960s Topps trading card series, the hilarious sci-fi satire Mars Attacks! finds Earth invaded by Martians, with every attempt at peaceful overtures from our leaders answered with a ray gun. Our civilization is lost…until Slim Whitman comes to the rescue. The all-star cast includes Jack Nicholson, Glenn Close, Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael J. Fox, Natalie Portman, Jim Brown, and the great Sylvia Sidney in her final role. (106 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the film screens in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM. Heirloom café is open until 8 PM if you want to grab a bite before heading outside.
