About the Movie

Welcome to a 1970s’ version of the future, where the pants are wide, the music is groovy, and the new frontier is interplanetary. When a new assistant captain (Liv Tyler) arrives on the Omega 76, tensions spark, and more than asteroids collide. This smart and quirky film-festival favorite stars Patrick Wilson, Jerry O’Connell and Matt Bomer. Take a journey on an out-of-this-world adventure.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A protracted, scattershot comedy sketch that never quite nails its tone. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Sep 18, 2014

Fresh: With the aid of ensemble players who maintain admirably straight faces amid the absurdity, director Jack Plotnick gets an impressive amount of mileage from a concept that might seem at first blush barely adequate to sustain a Saturday Night Live sketch. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Sep 15, 2014

Fresh: At once a spoof of, and loving tribute to, '70s-era visions of the future, Space Station 76 nods to 2001 in numerous ways. – Nick Schager, AV Club, Dec 9, 2014

Fresh: This may look like a wacky spoof of 1970s sci-fi, but Jack Plotnick's beautifully designed comedy-drama actually has a lot more on its mind. – Christy Lemire,, Oct 9, 2014

Beautiful, funny, charming, smart…

Don’t expect Anchorman in Space and it’s not for everyone but,…this is a surprisingly heady dark drama/comedy that perfectly encapsulates my childhood love for 70’s sic-fi. All my favorite movies are there…Silent Running, Logan’s Run, Space:1999 and a touch of 2001 (from the 60’s I know) but so much love was given in the making of this thing.

Cool movie, groovy music

Loved that they use the music of that new hot band Cosmic Suckerpunch. Ckeck’em out!

Sad and depressing

Having grown up in the 70's as a child I did recognize many of the references to other iconic 70's SciFi but that alone did not save this movie. I truly wanted to like this movie, but in the end it just left me sad and depressed. It did capture many of the problems I remember seeing with relationships and pop-therapy and child rearing. I will say the acting was well done but the overall tone left me wanting it to end.
