The Isthmus Society of UW-Madison is sponsoring the showing of the 1960 Oscar-nominated classic "Inherit the Wind". The film, which helped shape the American debate over the teaching of evolution in the public schools, stars Spencer Tracy, Frederic March, and Gene Kelly. Prior to the screening, Ronald L. Numbers, the Hilldale Professor of the History of Science and Medicine Emeritus at UW-Madison, will give a historical introduction to the film and its legacy. The event is free and open to the public. If you’re a Madison Skeptic who would like to sit in group during the movie, look for someone holding a “Madison Skeptics” sign outside the Marquee Theater until about 10 minutes before show time. Madison Skeptics are also invited to gather in the Prairie Fire coffee house/wine bar on first floor of Union South after the film for lively conversation.
Hope to see folks there!
