Not Rated (98 min) Set entirely on another world in interstellar space – far away from planet Earth – Forbidden Planet is considered one of the great science fiction films of the 1950s and a precursor of what was to come for the genre.

Join us one Saturday each month (1pm and 7pm) as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News-Gazette screenings, and film critic Chuck Koplinski leads discussions after all of our evening screenings. NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
