The Sci-Fi Film Series was the spook of the summer. Denver Film and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science joined forces to untangle fact from fiction in your favorite science fiction films. Museum scientists and Vincent Piturro, English and Film professor at MSU Denver, screened classic sci-fi films and lead discussions exploring where science and film meet. 

Returns Summer 2020.
