B-Movies and Bad Science

Only this summer we’re taking it outside! Bring your picnic blanket and cozy up to watch a movie either on the South Lawn or in Hancock Park at the Page Museum.

Come join us for thrills, chills, and, yes, all the goofiness of those vintage sci-fi and horror flicks, and get here early for a light-hearted discussion with our own science experts, as we introduce the day's featured movie to see if there's any common ground between science fact and science fiction.

Check out a spotlighted specimen from the collection or the colorful B-movie memorabilia, including lobby cards, posters, and even actual movie props. See it all, and you'll agree that real science can be just as wild and out of this world as reel science!

Discussion: 7:30 pm
Movie Begins: 8 pm
