The Twilight Zone Celebrates 60 Years of the Surreal with Six Classic Episodes and More
From the four repeating notes of its theme music to its unforgettable tales of the supernatural and the surreal, few television series have reshaped the medium as much as Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone.” On November 14, 2019, at 7pm local time, Fathom Events and CBS Home Entertainment celebrate the series’ 60th anniversary with a one-night-only event exclusively in over 600 cinemas nationwide — “The Twilight Zone: A 60th Anniversary Celebration.”

The six episodes that will be screened as part of “The Twilight Zone: A 60th Anniversary Celebration” are:
- “Walking Distance”– Busy and stressed out, Martin Sloan (Gig Young) is a Madison Avenue executive who stops his car at a gas station that isn’t far from the small town where he grew up.

- “Time Enough at Last” – Harry Bemis (Burgess Meredith) loves to read.

(Original airdate: Nov. 20, 1959)
- “The Invaders” – An elderly woman (Agnes Moorhead) who lives alone a ramshackle farmhouse hears noises on her roof.

- “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” – On a pleasant day, the residents of Maple Street are disturbed by a noise and a tremor.

- “To Serve Man” – Michael Chambers (Lloyd Bochner) recounts recent events on earth following the arrival of an alien spacecraft.

In addition to the six episodes, this unique celebration of “The Twilight Zone” also features “Remembering Rod Serling,” an all-new documentary that takes viewers into the fertile imagination and life of series creator Serling. It offers a closer look at the life experiences that inspired Serling’s unique blend of thought-provoking and visionary storytelling, from his time as a paratrooper in World War II to his early writing days in live television, and ultimately to the creation of this indelible TV series. Friends, collaborators and members of the Serling family offer insight into the man whose creativity has inspired audiences around the globe for 60 years.
By Grabthar’s Hammer, All-New Documentary for Galaxy Quest Fans
By all accounts, it was a movie that beat all odds: Surviving a set fire, the loss of a powerful director, and a studio that didn’t understand what it had, “Galaxy Quest” turned into a pop-culture phenomenon that would “never give up, never surrender.” As the cult classic nears its 20th anniversary – premiering on December 25, 1999 – “Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary” explores how the science-fiction comedy became an enduring fan favorite, a movie that helped launch the sci-fi- and fantasy-driven movie and TV industry that dominates global entertainment today.
On November 26, 2019 only, Fathom Events and Fandom present the theatrical premiere of “Never Surrender: A Galaxy Quest Documentary,” which includes exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and a 10-minute introduction featuring the cast members of ScreenJunkies.
