The Dinner break will serve as an intermission between the two parts of this feature.
In 1978 Jeff Wayne composed and produced one of the most groundbreaking and best-selling musical works of all time. In 2006 after much anticipation Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of The Worlds was brought to the stage for the first time, playing to sold-out arenas across the UK. The War of The Worlds Live is a spectacular mix of live music, theatre, multi-media and visual arts on a grand scale.

We will break half way through War of the Worlds for a pot luck dinner between features to discuss what we've just seen, what is coming, and more. Usually a lively conversation is had by all. You can bring what you want to share or just something for yourself.
There will be more amazing shorts between dinner and part 2. After which, we will show our final feature.
Invaders from Mars (1953)
(1953, 78 minutes); Starring Helena Carter, Arthur Franz, Jimmy Hunt, & Leif Erickson
A young boy learns that space aliens are taking over the minds of earthlings.
One night, young David McLean sees a spaceship crash into a nearby sandpit. His father goes to investigate, but comes back changed. Where once he was cheerful and affectionate, he's now sullen and snarlingly rude. Others fall into the sandpit and begin acting like him: cold, ill-tempered and conspiratorial.
