The Science Fiction Star Chart is based on the night sky above Théâtre Robert-Houdin in Paris on September 1st, 1902 following the first screening of Georges Méliès Le Voyage dans la Lune (A Trip to the Moon). Méliès, a French filmmaker and magician, is regarded by many as a pivotal figure in the history of sci-fi and narrative filmmaking.
The Star Chart features the films (and a few TV shows) that are culturally significant to the genre and pays homage to the actors, directors, producers, graphic artists, authors and writers whose work has been pivotal to the enduring popularity of science fiction.
The 134 titles featured include those chosen for preservation in the US National Film Registry due to their cultural, historical or aesthetic significance, and a few personal favorites, including: early era silent films (A Trip to the Moon and Metropolis), B movies and big budget movies of the 50s (Plan 9 from Outer Space, Forbidden Planet, The Day the Earth Stood Still), groundbreaking 'new wave' films from the 60s and 70s (2001: A Space Odyssey, Solaris, A Clockwork Orange), worldwide box office successes of the 70s and 80s (Star Wars, Alien and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial), contemporary blockbusters (Inception and Gravity) and cult TV series (Doctor Who and Star Trek).
