UPDATE: 05/07/10: We renegotiated with Henry's Hat for minimum food/beverage credit required for our May Birthday Celebration. FREE MOVIE TICKET OFFER HAS EXPIRED!! If you're joining us for dinner and drinks after the movie, you can submit your PayPal payment. NO REFUNDS WILL BE ALLOWED, instead you'll receive a $25 Henry's Hat food/drink coupon to use at a later date if you're unable to join us.

Please join us at 3:00 pm to celebrate our May birthday "babies" (including yours truly) at Henry's Hat in our reserved private room (The Den). SoCal Science Cafe is negotiating with Business Technology Center of Los Angeles County/JPL members to participate in a robotics Q&A. We'll dine using our food/beverage credits towards menu items and play: Nintendo Wii games on the 7' x 8' projector screen, video-based trivia and board games.


Join BustAGroove, the Fanatics and SoCal Science Cafe for a Saturday afternoon screening of one of this year's blockbusters, Iron Man 2: The IMAX Experience.



Plot: Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the highly anticipated sequel to the blockbuster film based on the legendary Marvel Super Hero "Iron Man", reuniting director Jon Favreau and Oscar nominee Robert Downey Jr. In "Iron Man 2", the world is aware that billionaire inventor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is the armored Super Hero Iron Man. Under pressure from the government, the press and the public to share his technology with the military, Tony is unwilling to divulge the secrets behind the Iron Man armor because he fears the information will slip into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), and James “Rhodey” Rhodes (Don Cheadle) at his side, Tony forges new alliances and confronts powerful new forces.

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Mickey Rourke, Sam Rockwell, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Garry Shandling, John Slattery, Kate Mara, Clark Gregg, Olivia Munn
Run Time: 2 hrs. 5 mins
MPAA Rating: PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence and some language

    Thanks to everyone for coming out to support our events and for sharing your time with new and familiar faces. It was a pleasure seeing Dennis F. again and meeting our speaker, Kishi yesterday. Your ideas on new approaches to science were insightful with great information to the groups. Dennis, thank you for making time to help coordinate a successful event and Kishi for joining us and for sharing your thoughts. I liked Iron Man better than the sequel although seeing Iron Man 2 a second time did help close up some gaps in continuity. Hammer played the weasely villiian to the hilt. The development of the newer characters is a good sequeway to movie spinoffs. Henry's Hat is a good venue for groups with good food and attentive staff (shout out to Minnie G.) who helped keep track of food/beverage and that we were served in reasonable time. Will definitely host more events at Henry's Hat.

    The movie fulfilled all its advance billing and our speaker Kishi did a great job of explaining what part of the movie's science is available today and speculated on when the SciFi parts will arrive.
