This March, the Belcourt celebrates its fifth year of Science on Screen®, a national initiative made possible through a grant by the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and tied directly to the Belcourt’s ongoing education and engagement programs. Comprised of four Tuesday night Main Events as well as a selection of four science-centric Saturday Family Films, this year’s program features film screenings paired with discussions by nationally recognized scientists, filmmakers and educators.
