What is Sci-Fi Double Feature?
Sci-Fi Double Feature is an all ages cardboard puppet show filmed and projected live on to the big screen, in order to create a one-take 1960s sci-fi B-movie.
The show is comprised of two sci-fi B-movie puppet shows or acts. The two movies are linked by a stop-motion animation that looks behind the scenes on the sci-fi set.
Act 1: Attack of the Slime-O-Trons
Two intergalactic lovers must save earth from a hoard of vengeful invaders.
Intermission: Meanwhile Backstage

Act 2: Last Day on Earth
A professor and his dog travel back in time on a quest to prove the existence of a three-headed dinosaur, only to find they’ve arrived minutes before an impending meteorite threatens mass extinction.
