Movie Night

Forbidden Planet is a sci-fi movie that frightened me. I’m not sure how old I was when I first saw it. Featuring well-known actors, this movie was a major production. I have watched Forbidden Planet a few times since I was a kid and still enjoy seeing it. Robbie the robot was fascinating to me. One of my favorite movies.

Rob Hartill

Forbidden Planet is a 1956 American science fiction film produced by Nicholas Nayfack, directed by Fred M. Wilcox that stars Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, and Leslie Nielsen. Shot in Eastmancolor and CinemaScope, it is considered one of the great science fiction films of the 1950s, and a precursor of contemporary science fiction cinema


South East Theater

Forbidden planet is one of those movies I saw for free at the South-East theater in Sugarhouse. I think I was only 9 or 10 years old when I first watched this movie. I believe this movie and the other science fiction movies that are presented at the South-East theater helped me to understand the difference between what is real and what was imaginary.

The free Movies which were presented on Saturdays where is sponsored by the retail businesses were in the Sugarhouse area. If the children are busy at the movies, the parents could go shopping without interference. It worked out very well.
