Check out the list we compiled of some of our favorite Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror movies and TV shows that feature some crazy, awesome glasses. We hope these films will inspire your future eyewear choices; it really is amazing how the past influences the future when it comes to style! But hey, we won’t blame you if you choose to leave some of these styles right where you found them!!!
They Live - WWF wrestler Rowdy Roddy Piper discovers a box of super cool looking sunglasses that just happen to allow him to see the hard truths of the world around him. Oh, and the alien race that has infiltrated the human race. Campy B movie with poignant social commentary and really bad acting; what’s not to like?
Twilight Zone - In classic Rod Sterling fashion, these short stories are a little eerie, a little goofy and totally brilliant! Oddly, both of these stories feature broken glasses with dire consequences for their owners.
< Time Enough At Last (1959): Can a pair of glasses and a love for reading equal bliss in a nuclear holocaust? Maybe. Maybe not.
20/20 Vision (1988): If only we could all peer into the future when our glasses break.
Orphan Black - In a show about clones, where one actress plays all the roles, costumes are of upmost importance. The brainy, science loving character Cosima wears the “Sylvie” frame from our own “Salt Optics” line. It really sets her apart from all her other clones! But, it does raise the question… why is she the only clone who needs glasses?
