Sci-Fi Cinema in the 1960s

by mike_sean | created - 06 Mar 2011 | updated - 03 Nov 2014 | Public

Science fiction movies from the sixties (1960-1969), including TV movies as well as stand-alone mini-series. This list uses a fairly strict definition of science fiction, and therefore does not include most films that deal with fantasy, the supernatural, or super heroes. Films that fall more under the umbrella of horror (like a lot of zombie and pandemic films) have also been omitted.
