11:30 PM Forbidden Planet (1956)

A group of space troopers investigates the destruction of a colony on a remote planet. Sci-fi version of Shakespeare's The Tempest remains one of the most ambitious and intelligent films of its genre; only slow, deliberate pacing works against it, as [Leslie] Nielsen and fellow space travelers visit planet where expatriate [Walter] Pidgeon has built a one-man empire with daughter [Anne] Francis and obedient Robby the Robot. Great effects, eerie electronic score.

Cast includes Walter Pidgeon, Anne Francis, Leslie Nielsen, Warren Stevens, Maverick's Jack Kelly, The Six Billion Dollar Man's Richard Anderson, Earl Holliman, Robby the Robot, George Wallace, The Virginian's James Drury and Harry Harvey Jr.

01:30 AM 20 Million Miles To Earth (1957)

A crashed spaceship unleashes a rapidly growing monster from Venus. First spaceship to Venus crashes into the sea off Sicily, with two survivors: pilot [William] Hopper and a fast-growing Venusian monster that just wants to be left alone (but fights back when frightened). Climax takes place in the Colosseum in Rome. Intelligent script, fast pace, and exceptional special effects by Ray Harryhausen make this one of the best monster-on-the-loose movies ever.

Cast includes Perry Mason's William Hopper, Joan Taylor, Frank Puglia, John Zaremba, Thomas Browne Henry, Tito Vuolo, Jan Arvan, Arthur Space and Bart Braverman.
