“You are traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land of imagination,” goes Rod Serling’s haunting Twilight Zone intro that still resonates all these years later—50, to be exact. Arlen Schumer, author of Visions From the Twilight Zone, hosts The Twilight Zone Forever, a fascinating look into one of the most profound sci-fi series of all time on its 50th anniversary. Tonight’s discussion will feature screenings of two classic episodes: “Eye of the Beholder,” in which having a pig face is normal, and the even scarier “Where Is Everybody?” about a lone, bewildered Air Force pilot who wanders through a vacant town. Spooky! Watch out for wormholes on your way home.
