History of the Future: They Live

Event Details

Buy Tickets This summer, FilmBar and Arizona State University’s Center for Science and the Imagination are going back to the future.

This second installment of The History of the Future film series, inaugurated in summer 2016, rounds up another set of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films from decades past. With introductions and comments from scholars and experts, we’ll examine stories about the future from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and think about how accurate those visions turned out to be.

They Live, released in 1988, envisions a society dominated by camouflaged aliens who use subliminal messages embedded in advertising and the mass media to manipulate people to unquestioningly accept the status quo.

Tickets are $7 apiece, and each ticket includes a free popcorn and $1 off your first drink. Buy your ticket today!
