Le Voyage dans la Lune

Le Voyage dans la Lune is a 1902 French black and white silent science fiction film. It is loosely based on two popular novels of the time: From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne and The First Men in the Moon by H. G. Wells.

The film was written and directed by Georges Méliès, assisted by his brother Gaston. It was extremely popular at the time of its release and is the best-known of the hundreds of fantasy films made by Méliès. It is the first science fiction film, and utilizes innovative animation and special effects, including the iconic shot of the rocketship landing in the moon's eye.

This version features a Soundtrack by Erich Wolfgang Korngold & Laurence Rosenthal.
