I am posting the whole season of "Science on Screen" which occur on the second Tuesday of each month. The movies start at 7:00pm; I set our Meetup time at fifteen minutes earlier so we can gather and find seats together. Cost is $10 for non-members and $5 for Real Art Ways members; discounts for seniors and students.
In the 23rd century of the classic film Forbidden Planet, Cmdr. J.J. Adams guides United Planets cruiser C-57-D on a rescue mission to a faraway planet where a ship disappeared. Only the ship's philologist, Dr. Morbius, survived. In the intervening decades, Morbius has created an Edenlike world of his own, for the benefit of himself and his daughter, Altaira. His private paradise is zealously guarded by Robby the Robot, a piece of technology far in advance of anything on Earth. Directed by Fred-McLeod-Wilcox, 1956, 98 min.
Tim Gifford, Owner and CEO of Movia Robotics LLC and director of the Advanced Interactive Technology Center at UConn, has invented a robot that interacts with children who are on the autism spectrum.
