Last Remaining Seats: Planet of the Apes (1968)

It’s a madhouse … of ‘60s sci-fi fun. Charlton Heston stars in the iconic cult classic with one of the most famous endings in film history: PLANET OF THE APES.

Directed by Academy Award winner Franklin J. Schaffner (Patton) from a screenplay co-written by Rod Serling, Planet of the Apes is a star-studded sci-fi, dystopian drama. Charlton Heston - at the height of his career - stars as Taylor, a U.S. astronaut whose ship goes off course on a long-range space mission.  He and his fellow astronauts - all in hibernation - crash on an alien planet over two thousand years later.  They learn this planet is ruled by intelligent, talking apes who’ve built a civilization in which mute humans live and work as animals.  Taylor must struggle to survive in a hostile world where simians use humans for physical labor and medical experiments.  It all leads to one of the greatest shock endings in cinema history.
