Science On Screen 2021

Science On Screen 2021

Though we had to skip last year’s program for obvious reasons, the Belcourt is happy to once again present the newest installment of our annual Science on Screen® series, 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. The Belcourt is one of a select group of theaters nationwide to receive this grant. Science on Screen® is a series of film screenings accompanied by discussions with leading scientists, researchers and other experts.
