Other Dimensions: Fantastic Voyage (1966)
An important scientist is attacked, and the resulting brain injury is inoperable – from the outside, at least. The solution: shrink a surgical team down to microscopic size and inject them into his bloodstream, so they can operate from the inside. A great sci-fi concept was somewhat limited by the era’s technology, yet it’s still a fondly remembered, brightly colorful adventure.
Other Dimensions is part of a series of classic and international features designed for sci-fi fans, presented free throughout the summer, coinciding with the exhibition Star Wars™ and the Power of Costume. Some of these are movies that George Lucas has cited as being his favorites, others are examples of the vast variety of pre-Star Wars fantasy, science fiction and adventure that fired the imaginations of young audiences in the 1950s and earlier. Raised on the infinite possibilities of movies, this was a generation ready to embrace Lucas’s vision. Each feature film will be preceded by one chapter from the three original Flash Gordon serials of the 1930s.
