Journey To The Center Of Time (1967)

Starring Scott Brady, Anthony Eisley, Gigi Perreau, Abraham Sofaer, Austin Green
Directed by David L. Hewitt
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

A team of scientists trying to find a way to look into the future accidentally open a rift that transports them and their lab five thousand years forward in time.

More ambitious than its budget, this film can't deliver the goods as far as realistically depicting a future Earth, or one of the ancient past, and we get very sparsely decorated sets instead.  The journeys to those sets aren't any better, as the bulk of the movie is largely confined to technical discussions among the actors, and some very limited special effects, and it doesn't help that the story is far too similar to other efforts of the era, like The Time Travelers and The Terrornauts.  The film does boast a pretty good cast- it's just too bad the filmmakers couldn't build a better movie around them.
