What are some lesser-known Time Travel flicks?

One of my coworkers wants to do a time-travel night (oh, the joy of working at a cinema). We don't want to run anything that everyone's already watched.

On the schedule so far we have Primer and Timecrimes. We don't want to run anything like Back to the Future or Donnie Darko, which everyone's seen. No TV shows.

Any thoughts?

Less a movie and more a PSA but still... time travel.

Triangle has a good number of similarities to Timecrimes, but for some reason is a tad more guilty pleasure-ish.

Eliminators ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJgAeGUD2FU ) is from 1986 and occasionally airs on random channels, it's 1980s b-movie time travel at its finest.

Time after Time isn't unknown but since it's a tad older it's often forgotten.

The Visitors from what I recall was pretty well regarded as well, though I hear the remake (Just Visiting) blew.

An '80s gem that is forgotten by most but lots of fun.

You should plan to run Primer twice.

Applying the 'lesser-known' label to some of these would be pushing it

Millennium comes to mind
