The YLE Teema tv station has a “Kino Scifi” theme of classic science fiction movies on Wednesdays this summer. Kino Scifi starts with an “East and west” theme Saturday on June 12, when there will be two movies: 2001: A Space Odyssey (UK 1968), and Ikarie XB 1, made in Czechoslovakia in 1963.
The Wednesday films are: Metropolis (Germany 1926), Things to Come (UK 1936), The Thing from Another World (USA 1951), This Island Earth (USA 1955), Forbidden Planet (USA 1956), The Incredible Shrinking Man (USA 1957), Invasion of the Body Snatchers (USA 1956), Alphaville (France 1965), La Jetée (France 1962), Fahrenheit 451 (UK 1966), Silent Running (USA 1972), and Sleeper (USA 1973). That’s a mighty fine list of old classics, and there are some truly great films on it. Well worth watching!
