Superman (1978)
December 7, 2011 - 7:30 pm

Directed by Richard Donner

A flying alien in tights masquerades as reporter, romances coworker, fights evil super genius, saves humanity, and paves the way for a thousand future comic book film adaptations. Forget the Green Lantern, Thor, or whatever else you saw this summer; Christopher Reeve soars in this classic from a time long ago in a galaxy without computer generated imagery.
