The Old Globe presents its free summer film series on their beautiful indoor and outdoor stages. The series kicked off with the classic Forbidden Planet: From the mind of Fred Wilcox (Lassie Come Home, The Secret Garden) comes one of the greatest science-fiction films of the 1950s. Based on Shakespeare’sThe Tempest, this interstellar space story is one of the first to depict humans traveling in a faster-than-light starship. A spaceship headed by commander John J. Adams (Leslie Nielsen) and his crew travels to the distant planet Altair IV to determine the fate of scientists sent to the planet 20 years earlier. The crew arrives to find scientist Dr. Edward Morbius (Walter Pidgeon) and his daughter Altaira (Anne Francis) still alive. Soon, Adams and his crew begin to uncover why Morbius and his daughter were the sole survivors.
