List of space travel movies

Space travel movies have existed for decades and have never been released in theaters. To help you relive these classics, I’ve listed the most popular films made in 1992.

I’ve also included a list of movies made after this date, but they’re not in order.

There are often lists of movies by year, genre, director, etc. This is a very large list, so I suggest using the search function to find what you want. If you’re looking for a specific movie from this list, try searching on IMDB. The first feature film, called The Kinetograph, was made in 1897 by Thomas Edison. It was a single-camera device that recorded onto a strip of celluloid film. This was used to create the first motion pictures ever made.

Please comment below if you have any suggestions for additions to this list. Today is the day that my friend and I are celebrating our tenth anniversary together. Ten years is a lot, and it’s been an interesting ride. When we started dating, I remember she was more into punk rock than I was. We were both still young but getting into some pretty heavy stuff. She was into the Sex Pistols, the Clash, The Buzzcocks, etc.
