  3. JOIN CINEMA OBSCURA - a meetup.com group for moviegoers in NYC



    TONIGHT (Thursday, August 28th) …

     

    •  @ 7pm: 
      The Fabulous World of Jules Verne 
      (aka, The Deadly Machine)

    at Film Society of Lincoln Center (Walter Reade Theater)

    Cinema Obscura will be taking a dive for an evening of
    giant squids, submarine battles and coffee at Film
    Society of Lincoln Center as they present The Fabulous
    World of Jules Verne (AKA The Deadly Invention)
    . A blend
    of live-action, inventive meliese-esque visual tricks and
    animation, this Czechoslovakian undertaking of the late fifties
    garners high acclaim.

    "The picture is worth seeing for its technical wizardry 
    alone (labeled MistiMation). It is a visual canvas that is
    part Dante, H. G. Wells and Mary Petty.” - NY Times




    SEE YOU AT THE MOVIES!
