Science on Screen: Obselidia

Thursday March 21st

Libraries in the 21st Century

The Eureka Theater presents a National Evening of Science on Screen®, featuring Obselidia (2010). A Sundance Film Festival award winner, the film follows a nostalgic librarian cataloging obsolete occupations. While traveling to Death Valley, he partners with a silent film projectionist to meet an eccentric scientist predicting the end of the world.

But do all librarians live in the past? Preceding the film, a panel of local librarians will discuss their experiences in the world of information science, and how libraries have helped information become more accessible in the digital age.

Tickets $5.
Doors open 6:30 | Panel discussion 7:00 | movie  8:00

Science on Screen® is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
