The Media Arts Center San Diego’s Digital Gym Cinema will be screening “Reel Science Film Series”, which is a month-long film series (‘Altered States’, ‘Weird Science’, ‘Donnie Darko’ and ‘Flash Gordon’) that explores scientific themes in cult cinema and provides audiences with the science behind the fiction.

They will be pairing those cult sci-fi favorites with local scientists for an evening of mind-expanding fun. Before each film they will have games, trivia, door prizes, and a chance to interact with the guest scientists, who will contextualize scientific themes explored in the movie by providing corrective commentary – explaining what the filmmakers got right and, in some cases, so very wrong, in portraying concepts from the bleeding edge of scientific inquiry.

This program will take place on Saturdays in January 2017, with the San Diego Natural History Museum and Digital Gym Cinema hosting the program on alternating weekends.
