Innerspace

Directed by Joe Dante
With Dennis Quaid, Martin Short, Meg Ryan
1987, 120min, 35mm

 

A Navy test pilot (Quaid) is miniaturized as part of a top-secret experiment that goes off-the-rails wrong when he’s accidentally injected into the body of a neurotic grocery store clerk (Short). This Steven Spielberg-produced homage to the science fiction classic Fantastic Voyage combines inventive screwball zaniness and a Martin and Lewis style buddy comedy dynamic with Oscar-winning special effects.

 
The Incredible Shrinking Man

Directed by Jack Arnold
With Grant Williams, Randy Stuart, April Kent
1957, 81min, 35mm

 

Months after he’s exposed to a radioactive fog, average Joe Scott Carey (Williams) begins to mysteriously shrink—and it’s only a matter of time before he’s literally knee-high to a spider. This masterpiece of 1950s science fiction—a precursor to Dante’s own miniaturization movie, Innerspace—employs ingenious optical effects to evoke the terrifying reality of a miniscule man while packing a surprisingly profound existential message.
