Project Moonbase is a black and white 1953 science fiction film directed by Richard Talmadge. The film is also known as Project Moon Base, and is based on a story by Robert A. Heinlein. Heinlein shares screenwriting credit. Mystery Science Theater 3000 featured it as an episode in its first Comedy Channel season in January 1990, and it was also broadcast in a syndicated television episode of the Canned Film Festival in 1986.

The film is unusual for its time in both attempting to portray space-travel in a 'realistic' manner, and for depicting a future in which women hold positions of authority and responsibility equal to men; in the script the President of the United States is a woman.

The film is set in 1970, and the United States is considering building bases on the Moon. A female colonel and two men are sent to orbit the Moon to survey for a possible landing area for future lunar missions, but things go haywire and their rocket ends up landing on the Moon where they wait for rescue...

The interior set of the spaceship was later used in the film Cat Women of the Moon 1953.
