On June 7, three films by pioneering French filmmaker George Méliès, considered to be one of the first to develop the science fiction genre, were screened at the Planetarium at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre. In addition to opening talks from film historian Michael Van De Bos and astronomer Christa Van Laerhoven, the “A Trip To The Moon (1902),”  “The Astronomer’s Dream (1898)” and “The Eclipse (1907)” were live scored by local multi-instrumentalist Owen Connell.
