NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

June 27, 2019:
In July, Turner Classic Movies will present Out of This World: A Celebration of Sci-Fi Movies.

The purpose: To honor the 50th anniversary of the NASA Apollo 11 Moon landing, as well as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as the first to walk on the surface (while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command and service module).

The two men landed on the Moon on July 16, 1969 in the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle.

Out of This World: A Celebration of Sci-Fi Movies includes nearly three dozen films, ranging on time from A Trip to the Moon (1902) to For All Mankind (1989).

While many take place en route to or on the Moon, some go beyond, including The Time Machine (1960), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977) and Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977).

Some reverse the situation: Aliens come to Earth! Including The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), The War of the Worlds (1953) and Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956).

And some are just sci-fi fun (if not classics): Them! (1954), The Blob (1958), The Fly (1958) And even Westworld (1973) for followers of the HBO series.
