The Museum and Denver Film have joined forces to untangle fact from fiction in your favorite science fiction films. Museum scientists and Vincent Piturro, English and Film professor at MSU Denver, screen classic sci-fi films and lead discussions exploring where science and film meet.
On Jul. 6, watch a screening of "2001: A Space Odyssey" followed by a discussion with Dr. Ka Chun Yu, assistant curator of space science, and Piturro. Ticket sales are through Denver Film.
Door open at 6:15 p.m. Come before the event to get a drink from the cash bar or for a book sale and signing of “The Science of Sci-Fi Cinema: Essays on the Art and Principles of Ten Films” with Piturro and co-authors. Inspired by the Sci-Fi Series, this volume of essays examines 10 films, with a focus on discerning the possible, the unlikely and the purely science fictional.
