2 p.m.Movie: Plan 9 From outer Space (1958) 90 Mins
Long regarded as a classic of bad Sci Fi this film has it all. Bad sets, wooden acting, cheap special effects. Yet there is still something appealing about this film despite all of these imperfections. Made during the Cold War era it has all the taboo associated with that time.
