So Seattle's impressive Cinerama just announced their First Annual Science Fiction Film Festival, running from April 19-May 2, and holy shit: I want to go see all of it, but especially 2001 (new 70mm print!), that Mad Max/Road Warrior double feature, that Terminator/Terminator 2 double feature, Silent Running and Barbarella and THX 1138 and Clockwork Orange and... yeah. I just want to see all of it. A full PDF schedule is here, and, according to Cinerama manager Greg Wood, the Solaris and War of the Worlds that're mentioned in there are the 1972 and 1953 versions, respectively.
