See this film: A Trip to the Moon [with An Extraordinary Voyage] @ the Brattle

If Martin Scorsese's Hugo accomplished nothing else, it deserves kudos for introducing a new generation to the great silent movie pioneer Georges Méliès and his silent short, A Trip to the Moon (1902). Using effects he employed as a stage magician, Méliès created a baroque sci-fi fantasy that still delights in this age of CGI. It plays at the Brattle Theatre with Serge Bromberg and Eric Lange's An Extraordinary Voyage (2011), a documentary about the restoration of the landmark film. The Brattle is at 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Wednesday, August 29 @ 3:30 + 5:30 + 7:30 + 9:30 pm | $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or
