In conjunction with The Eyes are Always There, Machine Project presents a special Mystery Theater showing of Planet 9 From Outer Space. This solo virtual reality play, presented in stereoscopic 3D, examines alien encounters through the myths of classic horror sci-fi movies, borrowing heavily from The Day the Earth Stood Still, and Plan 9 From Outer Space. J-Walt performs the roles of both moralizing admonisher and archetypal mad scientist, presenting the recent news from Pluto.
