Them!  (1954)

This classic of 1950s science fiction features giant mutant ants—a result of atomic bomb testing— wreaking havoc across the country with only an FBI agent and two brave myrmecologists to stop them.  Steeped in 1950s paranoia, this film is a cautionary tale and a creature feature wrapped into one—not to be missed by classic film fans or big bug enthusiasts.

35mm, b&w, 94 min. DIR: Gordon Douglas.  SCR: Ted Sherdeman, Russell Hughes.  CAST: James Whitmore, Edmund Gwenn, Joan Weldon.

Recommended for ages 9+
