366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 96

The Date: January 4
The Movie: First Men in the Moon (1964)
What Is It?: Underrated adaptation of one of H.G. Wells’s most underrated stories starts slowly and goofily, but it takes an exciting and dark turn when the crew of a moon rocket meet up with Ray Harryhausen’s BEMs.
Why Today?: On this day in 1959, Luna 1 becomes the first spacecraft to near the moon.
