Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

William Hedges, noted expert on the “Lost in Space” television series, will give a fascinating presentation on the facts behind secret exterior shooting locations used on “Lost in Space.” The original studio sets of the series were struck forty-six years ago, but the exterior filming sites still look just like they did back then, and you can visit them today.

Find out how these shots match up with what is there today and where to find the specific locations.
