The 1953 sci-fi flick, "It Came from Outer Space," will be screened at the Brooklyn Museum of Art on Aug. 2 at 7 pm as part of its monthly "First Saturday" program of free art and entertainment

Richard Carlson and Barbara Rush (pictured) co-star in the roles of a young scientist and schoolteacher who encounter invisible beings who invade Earth. The film, based on a Ray Bradbury story, complements the museum’s current exhibition, "Pulp Art: Vamps, Villains and Victors from the Robert Lesser Collection."

The museum will also offer Balkan music and jazz by Shequer at 6 pm, a sketching workshop at 6:30 pm, a gallery talk about pulp art by David Saunders at 7 pm, a talk about pulp art’s influence on computer game design by J.C. Herz at 8 pm, a screening of Stanley Kubrick’s "The Killing" at 9 pm and Caribbean music from 9 pm to 11 pm by JuanMa Morales and Sonido Costeno.

Take advantage of all the museum has to offer this weekend, because due to an anticipated reduction in funding for operating costs this fiscal year, the museum will close to the public from Aug. 4 to Aug. 19.

The Brooklyn Museum of Art is located at 200 Eastern Parkway at Washington Avenue in Prospect Heights. For more information, call (718) 638-5000 or visit the Web site at www.brooklynmuseum.org.
