THE DISASTER ARTIST 15

With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau—an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable—into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds. Based on Greg Sestero’s best-selling tell-all about the making of Tommy’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made”), The Disaster Artist is a hilarious and welcome reminder that there is more than one way to become a legend—and no limit to what you can achieve when you have absolutely no idea what you’re doing.

BEACH RATS 15

On the outskirts of Brooklyn, Frankie, an aimless teenager, suffocates under the oppressive glare cast by his family and a toxic group of delinquent friends. Struggling with his own identity, Frankie begins to scour hookup sites for older men. When his chatting and webcamming intensify, he begins meeting men at a nearby cruising beach while simultaneously entering into a cautious relationship with a young woman. As Frankie struggles to reconcile his competing desires, his decisions leave him hurtling toward irreparable consequences. Eliza Hittman’s award-winning Sundance hit is a powerful character study that is as visually stunning as it is evocative.

Minutes before the launch of their mission, the crew of Capricorn One (James Brolin, Sam Waterston and O. J.

For the sake of the nation’s morale and the future of NASA funding, they are coerced into taking part in an elaborate charade – but when the captive astronauts learn their capsule burned up on re-entry and the world believes them dead, they know their very existence now poses a threat to national security…

“An excellent, if forgotten, late seventies conspiracy thriller which takes the existent fable of the faked moon landing and runs with it”
Empire

The film will be preceded by a talk from Professor Karen Douglas of the University of Kent who will talk about when and why people believe in conspiracy theories, and why conspiracy theories are important.

Science Fiction Theatre is a monthly film club dedicated to classic sci-fi.
