And last week I actually limited myself to 2 martinis (rule of thumb: martinis are like boobs, 1 is not enough and 3 is too many) and stayed awake for the movie.
And for the first half, I figured the "future" must mean ~10,000 BC, as all the characters are primitive humans. Yor (Reb Brown) is extremely blonde and must come from the tribe that first invented shaving, as he's the only clean-shaven man around.
Then after the intermission (Yes, the Vortex Room has intermission to change reels when they play 16 mm film. Yes, this was on 16 mm film!) we learn there are space aliens. Wow, that was weird. And fun.
