Other Dimensions: The Time Machine (1960)

On the last day of 1899, the inventor of a time machine propels himself thousands of years into the future, where he discovers a civilization comprised of lethargic slaves and their cannibal masters, who hide underground. H.G. Wells’ classic tale of man’s past and possible future is one of the most visually rich sci-fi movies of its time. 

Other Dimensions is part of a summer-long series of family-friendly sci-fi films, 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.
