Traveling Through Time

No Charge



Tucson, Arizona  –  Join faculty and students from the School of Theatre, Film & Television as we take a final cinematic journey through time this school year. Time travel has been a popular trope in film, television and literature for over a century. Time travel stories encourage us to reflect on where we've been, and where we're headed. Over the course of the year, we have watched science fiction and fantasy classics from the '60s, '70s, and '80s – films about time travel that have thrilled you, made you laugh and made you think.  The Widescreen Wednesdays program features not only the screening of a complete feature film, but a lively and informative introduction to each film by a UA professor. Plus, a student from the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film & Television will present one of his or her short films!

The PLANET OF THE APES franchise has been successfully revived in recent years, so let's take a trip back to the 1970s and the original hit series! Super-intelligent apes from the future, including Zira (Kim Hunter) and Cornelius (Roddy McDowall) from the first film, travel back in time to 1973 in order to escape the nuclear apocalypse of their own world. The apes become media celebrities, but the U.S. Government is deeply fearful of what they might mean for the future of mankind. The apes have already survived disaster in the future... Will they be able to survive the bigotry of the 20th century?
