I concur wholeheartedly! 1950s science fiction films are some of my favorites. For me, part of it is just a sense of nostalgia - I grew up in the 60s and 70s, but I remember these gems from weekend broadcasts on the independent TV channels in the LA area.
They broke new ground with these films. Despite the effects and acting issues, the filmmakers seemed to be completely sincere (with a few satirical exceptions). I think it'll be a rare occasion when we see modern films made with the same sense of almost child-like wonder - and fear.
I won't be able to make the screening, but I might make up for it by watching some of these old movies on TV with a glass of milk and a plate of chocolate chip cookies by my side, just like the old days.
