A Trip to the Moon

A conversation I had on Facebook about steampunk in cinema got me thinking about this film. Arguably the first Science Fiction movie ever made. Of course it doesn't hold up by today's standards, but at the time the special effects were absolutely amazing. Director Georges Méliès based his film loosely on Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon and The First Men in the Moon by H. G. Wells.
