366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 294

The Date: July 20

The Movie: A Trip to the Moon (1902)

What Is It?: Georges Méliès’s magic trick bag is bottomless in one of the first and most timeless explosions of cinematic special effects. There is not a frame of this tale of wizard scientists who crash into the moon’s eye and meet all manner of weird creatures that isn’t enchanting and iconic.

Why Today?: On this day in 1969, people land on the moon.
