'Outer Space' arrives in Columbia Heights
Joel Koyama, Star Tribune

Fans turned out at the Heights Theater in Columbia Heights last week for the world premiere of Christopher Mihm's latest film foray, "Destination: Outer Space." The movie follows in the sci-fi trail blazed by the Arden Hills filmmaker's previous works: "The Monster of Phantom Lake" (2006); "It Came From Another World!" (2007), "Cave Women on Mars" (2008) and "Terror from Beneath the Earth" (2009).

"Destination" involves a rocket that travels faster than the speed of light -- no small feat. Also remarkable was how Mihm's fans donated time and money when recession-related financial challenges put the movie up in the air ("Destination: Outer Space," North Extra, April 21)

Another metro-area showing is coming up at 7 p.m. June 25 at East Ridge High School, Woodbury.
