The episodes that will be screened are:
- “Walking Distance”- Busy and stressed out, Martin Sloan (Gig Young) is a Madison Avenue executive who stops his car at a gas station that isn’t far from the small town where he grew up.

- “Time Enough at Last” - Harry Bemis (Burgess Meredith) loves to read. The only problem is, he can find neither the time nor the place for it, and he’s harangued by his boss and his wife for his passion. As sneaks into the bank vault for some reading time, there’s a massive nuclear explosion. With the world gone, Harry has nothing but reading time. There’s just one catch. (Original airdate: Nov. 20, 1959)
- “The Invaders” - An elderly woman (Agnes Moorhead) who lives alone a ramshackle farmhouse hears noises on her roof.

She fights them off and destroys their ship, unaware of their true nature. (Original airdate: Jan. 27, 1961)
- “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” - On a pleasant day, the residents of Maple Street are disturbed by a noise and a tremor.
