"It Came From Outer Space" will be screened
in 3-D splendor Thursday.

Straight from the vaults

Movie gems from the past, hand-picked "from the vault," will be screened as part of Rick Kraemer's seven session class being offered at the Academy Art Center at Linekona beginning Thursday.

The classes will run 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays through Dec. 16.

Screening Thursday will be two sci-fi classics in their original versions, "Rocketship X-M" and "It Came From Outer Space."

The first film stars John Emery and Lloyd Bridges in a 1950 tale of inter-planetary travel. The latter film, made in 1953, was based on a Ray Bradbury story and was the first sci-fi film of the period to deal with the subject of alien "possession," a plot device often used for its Cold War implications.

Other themes include "Rare British Thrillers" (Nov. 11) and "Unique Melodramas" (Nov. 18).

The cost of the session is $70. To register, call the center at 532-8741.
