47th annual Sci-Fi Marathon

The Case Western Reserve University Film Society will hold its 47th annual Sci-Fi Marathon April 22–24 in Strosacker Auditorium.

The marathon holds the record as the longest-running genre film festival in the United States and will feature a lineup of movies spanning decades—with some fun surprises as well. There will also be vintage cartoons between movies, a fully stocked concessions stand with designated outdoor eating areas, and more.

The event begins Friday, April 22, at 8 p.m. with a showing of Dune and culminates Sunday, April 24, with a 12:10 a.m. showing of Pacific Rim.
