History of the Future Film: Outland



This summer we’re proud to present a film series examining gripping cinematic visions of the future emanating from different moments in recent history. Join us at FilmBar in Downtown Phoenix on the last Thursday of every month this summer, May through August, for The History of The Future: a series of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films paired with smart conversation from big thinkers and experts.

On June 30, we’ll be screening 1981’s Outland, starring Sean Connery. In the film, a police marshal stationed at a remote mining colony on Jupiter’s moon Io uncovers a drug smuggling conspiracy, and gets no help from the populace when he later finds himself marked for murder.

Each History of the Future event begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $6 apiece, and include your first drink free. Buy tickets today!

Other History of the Future film events will take place at Filmbar on July 28 (The Lawnmower Man), and August 25 (Equilibrium)
