KSPS 7 Spokane, WA
Saturday at 10:30PM PDT The Horns of Nimon movie version
The 4th Doctor arrives in an interstellar remake of a famous Greek myth. The dying Skonnan Empire delivers children and hymetusite from another planet to appease the Nimon, a being that has promised to make their race powerful again. The actors in this story have been unfairly accused of overacting, but if they are, it helps the plot. A wild ride with something for everyone - even cricket fans. The Nimon be praised!
