Where: Click the link below to find out!
Event Description: I've had a request from the ranks of the nerd posse to do an event for this Monday night film series at the Coolidge, but I have a standing obligation on Monday nights and am unable to host it myself.
BUT, The Boston International / Arthouse Movie Group is seeing this. and Nicole and Tom were nice enough to let me cross post.
So we'll see who wants to go from the nerd herd, and if we can get our own poop in a group then we're good, but if we can't we can tag along with Nicole after the movie to JP Licks and impress each other with our deep insights on the movie.
The Boston area is filled with academic superstars - so why not bring them to the movies? With Science On Screen, we present a feature film or documentary with a basis in science, along with exciting introductions by noted scientists in a related field.
Science on Screen programs are $9.75 regular admission, or $7.75 for seniors, students, and Museum of Science members.
Monday, October 29 @ 7:00 pm with physicist Alan Lightman in person!
Often referred to as one of the scariest films ever made, PULSE tells the story of a group of young friends rocked by the sudden suicide of one of their own, and his subsequent, ghostly reappearance in grainy computer and video images. Is their friend trying to contact them from beyond the grave, or is there something much more sinister afoot? The mysterious floppy disk they find in the dead man's apartment may provide a clue, but instead launches a program that seems to present odd, ethereal transmissions of people engaged in solitary activities in their apartments. But there is something not quite right in the appearance and behavior of these lonely souls. Soon, there are more strange deaths and disappearances within the group, terrifying rooms sealed in red tape, and the appearance of more ghosts as the city of Tokyo- and the world- is slowly drained of life.
dir. Kiyoshi Kurosawa, 1h48m In Japanese w/ English subtitles
