100 YEARS OF MOVIES Series: Science Fiction Classics

Join us for 100 YEARS OF MOVIES, a series of films spanning the past century!

Richard Dreyfuss stars in Steven Spielberg's classic sci-fi tale about two ordinary people who are transformed by extraordinary chance meetings with visitors from outer space. Roy Neary (Dreyfuss),  an Indiana electric lineman, finds his quiet and ordinary daily life turned upside down after he witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a "sunburn" from its bright lights to prove it. Roy refuses to accept an explanation for what he saw and is prepared to give up his life to pursue the truth about UFOs as a momentous event approaches.

This series presents films from every decade the Strand has been in operation, chosen for how they represented the filmmaking style and perspectives of their time. In addition to well-known films, the titles will include lesser-known, high quality releases that have been overlooked, as well as underrepresented movies and directors. The films were curated by Alicia Malone, a host on Turner Classic Movies (TCM); and Strand House Manager Liz McLeod, also a film historian. Each film will be introduced by Malone or McLeod, or a special guest presenter.
