Sci-Fi Film Series presented by Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Denver Film Society

Coming in July!

This summer the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Denver Film Society are proud to present the fifth edition of the popular Sci-Fi Film Series.

Science fiction feeds the imagination and helps us to explore possible futures, our hopes and fears, and the unfolding of technologies. Join Museum scientists and Vincent Piturro, English and film professor at Metropolitan State University of Denver, as they screen famous sci-fi films and lead discussions to break down the science behind these alternative possibilities, and separate fact from fiction.

All events begin at 7:00 p.m.
Please note: some screenings occur at the Museum of Nature & Science Phipp’s Auditorium.

Buy a Series Pass for $50 for Denver Film Society members and $65 for non-members!
