A Trip to the Moon 1902 U

13 mins France Director. Georges Méliès

A classic of early sci-fi from the master of fantasy cinema, Georges Méliès, this fusion of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne provides an awe-inspiring depiction of man’s first mission to the Moon. Full of classic imagery, from the chorus girls loading the space gun to the rocket landing in the man in the moon’s eye, this imaginative and enchanting film has lost none of its capacity to charm and delight.
