Fantasy Flicks

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library - Central Library

6 p.m.
It's just what it says on the tin: movies with some element of realism, some parsimonious narrative shred of the numinous, the impossible, the beguilingly made-up. Planets uninhabited and otherwise, fairies, space marines, time travel, wayward otherworldly machines, and the reality-bending light-out-of-darkness of every universe.  And, perhaps, a little adventure and romance, if our voyage permits.
