2012's "Robot and Frank" charmed and challenged moviegoers with the story of a robot that befriends an aging cat burglar, played by Frank Langella. Wonderfest and Variety Children's Charity are teaming-up to present a special screening of "Robot and Frank" along with affectionate commentary by UC Berkeley EECS professor Ken Goldberg.
The beautiful little "Variety Preview Theater" will open its doors at 6:30pm, and the movie will begin at 7:30. Free popcorn will abound; drinks and candy will be available. Following the movie, Prof. Goldberg will describe the current state of robotics and artificial intelligence.
