Science in the Cinema

Ask an expert if it's fact or fiction

In the fall of 2015, Alberta Innovates - Health Solutions transitioned their Science in the Cinema program to the University of Calgary and the University of Alberta.

Hosted by the University of Calgary's Cumming School of Medicine, Science in the Cinema brings together science and popular culture in a fun and engaging way. Watch a film with a health science theme and listen to an expert explain the science behind the movie. An interactive question and answer period follows each movie. 

Admission is FREE and all attendees will receive a voucher for a free small popcorn! All Calgary screenings currently take place at The Plaza, 1133 Kensington Road NW, Calgary, AB.  Doors open at 6:00pm, and screenings begin at 6:30pm.
