Science Friday is taking our radio series Science Goes To The Movies to movie theaters around the country to reveal the science behind some of our favorite films! This time, we’re teaming up with McMenamins’ Kennedy School Theater to present Contact, the 1997 sci-fi drama based on Carl Sagan’s book of the same name.
Following the film, we will host a live conversation with local experts ready to explore the science, technology, and astronomy from the movie.
McMenamins Kennedy School Theater offers a quality entertainment experience for deaf, hard of hearing and vision impaired guests. Movie showings are closed captioned, and the theater offers individual Captiview closed caption devices. In addition, they offer two types of headphones: hearing impaired headphones that amplify the dialogue, or visual impaired headphones that describe the scenery and action. Just inquire before showtime to use any of these devices. The theater is wheelchair accessible. Please inquire if you need assistance.
