Summer Sci-Fi Film Series: Research to the Rescue! 8/14-8/28

Thursdays, August 14–28, dusk
Bell Museum courtyard

Is your global climate in peril? Got alien invaders? Is a meteor threatening to end civilization as you know it? These campy sci-fi films put researchers up against natural disasters, unexplained phenomena, political bureaucracy, and even romance—will they save the day with science? Join the Bell Museum and Take-up Productions for the second annual Summer Sci-Fi Film Series featuring free outdoor films and related activities.
Films are free and start at dusk—popcorn and soda will be available for purchase. In the event of rain, films will be moved indoors to the Bell Museum Auditorium and begin at 8:30 p.m.
