The Magic Lantern League presents a Georges Melies Retrospective
Tuesday, May 20 * 7p-10:30p * Sherlock's Pub & Grill, North Austin
The Magic Lantern League hosts & supports the Austin Steampunk Film Series. Screenings are quarterly at Sherlock's North on the third Tuesdays of February, May, August, and November.
What are steampunk movies?
The series includes films with a steampunk (retrofuturism/neo-victorian) aesthetic, films based on the works of Victorian writers such as Welles, Verne, Burroughs & Doyle, films by early cinema pioneers such as the Lumiere Brothers and Melies, and films that simply "feel steamy".

Steampunk attire is strongly encouraged, but not required.
Please note that we ask everyone who wants to talk to please set in the booths and tables in the back of the room, away from the screen. Although this is a social event, it's also a movie screening for film enthusiasts. Thanks.
