Featuring a live Q&A with Writer/Director/Producer
Paul Davids after the show!
7 p.m. | $5 | 21 & over
Direct from the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival, this feature narrated by Peter Jackson and featuring such sci-fi greats as Ray Bradbury, Forrest J. Ackerman, John Landis, Ray Harryhausen and others makes its only stop in Portland. The film explores the sci-fi genre and those who live it and love it.
Said Peter Jackson: "The real reason ‘The Sci-Fi Boys' is so important is that it charts the evolution of fantastic cinema, to put on record, for all time, the influence that the pioneers of special effects had on my generation of filmmakers."
Afterwards, the film's writer, director and producer, Paul Davids ("Roswell" , "Timothy Leary's Dead"  and more) will answer your questions about the film, his work and more.
