Coming Soon at the Cocteau

Spain
ROBBIE THE ROBOT will be returning to the Jean Cocteau Cinema this weekend, to help us present one of the classic SF films of all time... no, not FORBIDDEN PLANET, we showed that one already (and will be showing it again this summer) -- WAR OF THE WORLDS, the great 1953 George Pal version.



We also have a new British comedy coming up: ALAN PARTRIDGE: ALPHA PAPA.  "The Comedy of the Year," somebody said.



ALAN PARTRIDGE opens on April 18, WAR OF THE WORLDS on April 11.

See you at the movies.

Alpha Papa
As a fan of Alan Partridge I must say it is the tv series that makes this character. This film not so much. I would recommend the series "I'm Alan Partridge" to anyone who enjoys awkward comedy.

Written In The Scrolls.
What did Rhaegar find in the scrolls that changed him i.e. make him decide to be a warrior?

I love that War of the Worlds! Jealous, I am.

The War of the Worlds was a favorite of mine growing up, and it still spooks me to this day. There's one scene in particular that always gets me, where Sylvia Van Buren is looking out the window, and one of the aliens touches her shoulder. Also, there's a scene in Spielberg's E.T that's quite similar between Elliott and E.T., and I always wondered if that was a nod to Haskin and Pal.

Also wanted to say that S4E1 was fantastic, and have been looking forward to this season for some time! Thanks for your work.
