Cornell Cinema is pleased to participate for the first time this year in Science on Screen®.

An initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Science on Screen® supports creative pairings of current, classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine. 

Cornell Cinema’s program will foreground cutting-edge research happening across campus and include topics such as food science, environmental governance, deep fake technology, and particle physics. Each screening will feature an introduction by and post-screening discussion with a resident expert on the topic at hand.
