    Screening: Things to Come

    In conjunction with the exhibition I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Design America, the Harry Ransom Center screens the Bel Geddes-influenced film Things to Come (1936) on Thursday, December 13, at 7 p.m.

    Written by H. G. Wells and directed by William Cameron Menzies, the British science fiction film is a loose adaptation of Wells's 1933 novel, The Shape of Things to Come, and his 1931 non-fiction work, The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind. With a plot that spans 100 years, Things to Come explores a decades-long second world war that results in plague and anarchy, followed by a rational state that rebuilds civilization and tries space travel.

    The event is free, but donations are welcome. Seating is limited. Line forms upon arrival of the first patron, and doors open 30 minutes in advance.
