Hollywood UFO is a documentary that invites viewers to join a community of paranormal investigators and alien abductees on the West Coast: From East Hollywood to Nevada’s infamous Area 51. The film also gives a history of UFO mythology through the use of declassified government footage, educational films and classic sci-fi movies. The film does contain graphic images, so viewer discretion is advised. Director George Willis will be in attendance at the screening.

For more info on the documentary, please visit the film’s official website. Or, if you can’t make it to this special screening, you can buy a DVD of it on Amazon. The DVD includes the film, plus lots of bonus footage including a 17-minute featurette on the late Forrest J Ackerman, who at one time was the literary agent for sci-fi authors such as Ray Bradbury, L. Ron Hubbard and Ed Wood. Ackerman was actually the dude who coined the term “sci-fi.”
