SCREENING

Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Ongoing

Dir. Don Siegel. 1956, 80 mins. 35mm. With Kevin McCarthy, Dana Wynter, Larry Gates. The “normal” residents of a small town are replaced by pods that grow into soulless duplicates, in this resonant and unsettling science-fiction film that perfectly evokes the social pressures of an era marked by conformity and paranoia. Siegel masterfully uses the widescreen frame to claustrophobic effect.

Tickets for Friday evening screenings: $12 ($9 for senior citizens and students / free for Museum members) and includes admission to the Museum’s galleries, which are open until 8:00 p.m.
