Find out if Jeff Goldblum succumbs to sleep and becomes one of them in the 1978 version of INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. A 35mm presentation!

Philip Kaufman’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers is one of two incredible remakes starring Mr. Goldblum. As with its predecessor, the film retains the sense of paranoia as we are shown the horrifying site of the human race being slowly transformed into extinction. Here we have an alien life form from deep space arriving in San Francisco after fleeing their dying planet and, as they begin mutating into other life forms on earth, people begin to wonder what is happening to their friends and family who are now devoid of any familiar characteristics. It seems to be up to Elizabeth Driscoll from the SF health department and her psychiatrist colleague Dr. David Kibner to save the city, or at least themselves and two friends, but you know how bleak these invasion tales go.

Jeff Goldblum stars as struggling writer, Dr. Kibner’s friend and co-owner of a bathhouse with his wife. The standard sarcastic humor provides levity as they all unsuccessfully fight to figure out how to not turn into one of them!
