Klaatu Barada Nikto

When the aliens do invade, will you be ready? Will you bake them a welcome wagon gift or celebrate your Second Amendment rights by stockpiling semi-automatics? Our built-in distrust of change is what made the original version of The Day the Earth Stood Still a cult classic. Our love of explosions and things that go boom will be credited to its remake’s success.

Yep! Keanu Reeves has found the perfect role: an emotionless messenger from outer space, but your trusty Klaatu’s still got Gort as a sidekick and the invisible support of all interplanetary travelers, so watch what you say about his acting. Especially when Gort is stretched stories high at the IMAX Theater.

Get immersed in complete global destruction today and every day through January 4 at the Museum of Discover and Sciences IMAX Theater at 401 SW Second St. in Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $12 for adults. Call 954-467-MODS, or visit mods.org.
