Fwd: Sci-fi Movie Night - "2001: A Space Odyssey"

is anyone from the ranks of the nerds going to this on Friday? I won't be able to make it myself (in other words, if I see this movie one more time I might just snap... like those bones in the beginning... great movie, but, ya know how it is)

lemmeno if you're going and would host - and I'll set it up as an event

To: [address removed]

This Friday, Feb. 29th beginning at 7:00 pm, CfA will hold a Sci-fi Movie
Night featuring Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey."

Meant to be vague, this movie is also stunningly real in its portrayal of
future space exploration and Artificial Intelligence computer technology.
This movie brings a whole new meaning to the term "intelligent design."
The short film chosen to complement 2001? Of course - it is Georges Melies'
1902 silent film, "A Trip To The Moon."

This event is part of the continuing series, "Everything I learned about
science, I learned at the movies." A brief presentation will address the
good and bad science in the film. Fun door prize giveaways will wrap up the
evening, and of course, the popcorn is free (as long as it lasts)!

This event takes place at Phillips Auditorium, 60 Garden Street, Cambridge.
Doors open at 6:30. Parking is available and admission is free.

For more information or directions, visit or call
(617) 495-7461.
