TONIGHT AT Coleman Project, Cosmo Vinyl & the Subterraneans present an evening of early sci-fi films from the 8mm collection of Philip Munnoch, followed by sci-fi go-go girls & dj sets.
The Crazy Ray (Paris Qui Dort, 1923). An experiment shot in 21 days by Rene Clair.
The night watchman on the Eiffel Tower comes off his shift to find people all over Paris frozen in motion. Paris has been brought to a complete standstill except for a few people who are out of range of Dr Bardon's ray.
Taxi Dolls (1929) American silent black and white slapstick comedy from Sennett's Keystone Comedy Studios.
Fritz Lang's Metropolis wasn't the only 1920s film to have a robot woman.
In Taxi Dolls, Professor Schmidt's astounding European novelty Beatrice the Mechanical Doll is the latest thing in obedient flappers until a stage hand accidentally starts her up and she becomes confused with an identical woman in one of the city's Owl Cabs.
A Trip to the Moon (Le Voyage dans la lune, 1902) French black and white silent made by and starring George Méliès.
A group of astronomers and astrologers plan a trip to the Moon in a gigantic bullet and have an adventure with the Selenites after landing in the eye of the Man in the Moon.
Conquest of the Pole (Conquête du pôle, 1912) French black and white silent science fiction/ fantasy film, one of only four films produced by Georges Méliès in his final year as a film maker.
A group of explorers attempt to reach the Pole and have an adventure with a gigantic menacing (man eating!) iceman.
