Here's the first half of March:

Fri 3/1, 10:45 AM: I Married a Witch (1942) with Fredric March and Veronica Lake

Sat 3/2, 8 PM: Around the World in 80 Days (1956) -- borderline genre at best, but it is Jules Verne. (The original book portrayed nothing that wasn't actually possible at the time; in fact, it was inspired by a newspaper article saying that it could be done.)

Mon 3/4, 10:30 AM: Between Two Worlds (1944) -- something to do with a luxury liner to the afterlife. Sydney Greenstreet and Paul Henreid are in it.

Wed 3/6, 9 PM: Bell, Book and Candle ('59) again

Sat 3/9:
9:15 AM: Cyclops ('57) -- Bert I. Gordon B-grade monster movie with Lon Chaney, Jr.
5:30 PM: Close Encounters of the Third Kind again

Mon 3/11:
9:15 AM: The Canterville Ghost ('44)
12:45 PM: Dick Tracy ('45)
2:00 PM: The Horn Blows at Midnight ('45) -- Ooh, I should watch this! Jack Benny constantly mocked his performance as an angel in this movie, but reportedly it's not that bad. It also features Margaret Dumont, the Marx Brothers' favorite foil.

Sat 3/16:
3:15 AM: The Awful Dr. Orloff ('62), B-horror.
9:00 AM: Attack of the 50 Foot Woman ('58)
3:00 PM: Creature from the Black Lagoon ('54)

Pretty slim pickings overall, but with some interesting stuff toward mid-month. There were a couple of false alarms, titles that sounded like they should be sci-fi but weren't, like Valley of the Giants (something about the redwood forests) and Night of the Iguana. And The Horn Blows at Midnight may not count as fantasy since it's presented as a dream, but I couldn't resist.
