Time Travel Not Guaranteed - Movie & Talk

Time Travel Not Guaranteed WonderfestRoger Ebert wrote of this terrific little film:

"Few descriptions of 'Safety Not Guaranteed' will do it justice. It's a more ambitious and touching movie than seems possible."

Time travel is a wonderful idea. Come explore that wonder while watching what Roger Ebert called "a more ambitious and touching movie than seems possible."

Your evening begins at 6:30 with a cash bar and free popcorn in the lounge of San Francisco's luxurious Variety Preview Theater.

Then, at 7:30, take limitless free popcorn to plush theater seating for a special screening of 2012's "Safety Not Guaranteed" (91% FRESH at Rotten Tomatoes).

Finally, at about 9 o'clock, physicist and sci-fi author Ken Wharton will help us examine the logic -- and illogic -- of time travel. Dr. Wharton is Professor of Physics and Astronomy at San Jose State University. He is also author of "Divine Intervention," earning the Special Citation for the Philip K. Dick Award in 2001.

All proceeds benefit Variety Children's Charity of Northern California and Wonderfest, the Bay Area Beacon of Science.

    Does anyone know if there is street parking for more than the 2 hour limit? Or is there a parking garage open into the evening in the area?

      It's possible that the 2 hour limit isn't in effect at night. I know there's a parking garage next to the Metreon that's open at night. 5th & Mission, I think.

    Just travelled back from tomorrow nights show, a great time was had by all. Before the show starts, I plan on smashing the projector and ruining it for all (kidding). Traveling backwards.,.no problem.

    As of Thursday morning, there are three (3) tickets left for this event. I'm not trying to pressure anyone into buying a ticket. I'd just like to help avoid disappointment among the 15 folks, here, who say they're "attending" but might have postponed taking the ticket-purchase plunge.

    Sorry, turns out I can't make it.

    For what it's worth, I just traveled ahead to June 8 and went to this event, and it was great.

      Which wormhole have you been using? The one I use keeps sending me to the Delta quadrant.

      I don't know, I just pay some guy to take care of it. His name is Broccoli or Barkely or something.

    Hi all, a reminder to purchase your tickets to guarantee seating. The popcorn is included. :)

    I can't wait to see Safety Not Guaranteed. This will be my second time. I think it's one of the ten best movies of 2012! And then to top it off with the insights of a time travel expert (if ANYONE can claim to be such, physics professor Ken Wharton can!) will make for the perfect night of science nerdiness.
