SCIENCE ON SCREEN®

An in-depth exploration of the mythical cephalopod and its real-life counterparts with Executive Vice President and COO of the Center for Aquatic Sciences, Angela Wenger.

CLASH OF THE TITANS follows Zeus’s mortal son Perseus (Harry Hamlin), who discovers that his destiny is to rescue and marry beautiful princess Andromeda (Julie Bowker), but only after passing a series of perilous tests. Gloriously over-the-top and relentlessly entertaining, this adventure features a crackerjack cast of respected thespians (including Maggie Smith as the goddess Thetis and Laurence Olivier as Zeus) and enough thrilling face-offs to fill a movie twice its length. But the real star of the show is special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen, whose eye-popping stop-motion animation brings to life such fabulous creatures as snake-haired Medusa, winged horse Pegasus, and, of course, the giant, tentacled Kraken.

The Science on Screen® program pairs screenings of classic, cult, science fiction, and documentary films with lively presentations by notable experts from the world of science and technology. Each film is used as a jumping-off point for a speaker to introduce current research or technological advances in a manner that engages audiences of all backgrounds.
