Alex Film Society Presents

40th Anniversary Screening of
Superman The Movie (1978)

  • This event has passed.

Featuring an all-star cast, SUPERMAN THE MOVIE is largely regarded as the most influential superhero origin story to grace the Silver Screen.

As young Kal-El flees his doomed planet of Krypton, his ship crashes in an open field on Earth. Discovered by a farmer and his wife, the couple adopts and raises him as their own son, Clark.  As he ages, Clark discovers that he has powers that ultimately send him on his destiny to become the Man of Steel.

Directed by Richard Donner and set to a John Williams score, SUPERMAN stars Marlon Brandon, Gene Hackman, Ned Beatty, Glenn Ford, Terence Stamp, Margot Kidder, Jackie Cooper, and Christopher Reeve in his iconic role as Superman.  Join us and you’ll believe a man can fly!

Special Guests: Producer Ilya Salkind will be signing and selling merchandise before and after the screening as well as participating in the onstage Q & A along with Jack O’Holloran (Non) and moderator Steven Kirk.
