Even if you are not a Trekkie, you can enjoy some good sci-fi. It’s a plus when you can enjoy it for free! On Friday, March 27th the LBJ Library and the Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow are partnering to present Unbelievable Fun Outside, a science fiction film festival in conjunction with a current exhibit at the museum. The festival will continue on Saturday with three more sci-fi films for you to enjoy.
The current exhibit being showcased at the LBJ library is “To the Moon: The American Space Program in the 1960s.” The LBJ Presidential Library is free to the public and a great place to take the entire family. The “To the Moon” exhibit will run until July 20, so if you are unable to make it to the film festival you still have some time to learn about President Johnson’s involvement in the NASA Space Program.
The events Friday will also include live music and Amy’s ice cream. The movie Friday night will be a great look back at classic science fiction. The clip below for 1953’s “War of the Worlds” looks prrrretty entertaining. (Don’t let the robotic aliens scare you away!)
