This series creatively pairs screenings of classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine.  Each film is used as a jumping off point for the speaker to reveal current scientific research or technological advances, providing the perfect combination of entertainment and enlightenment. This program is a national program run by several individual not-for-profit theater’s across the United States.   Post film discussions are created in partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology. 

Science on Screen at The Little Theatre Film Society is made possible through a grant by the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
