Science on Screen®

A science/movie mash-up

Creative pairings of current, classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine.

Since 2012, the Athena Cinema has been proudly participating in Science on Screen. The series highlights unexpected connections between art and science and brings dynamic speakers to our stage. Our event pairing sci-fi favorite Soylent Green with Russ Professor of Chemical Engineering, Dr. Gerri Botte, was even featured on Science Friday! You can listen to the episode here. Our events are fun and accessible to all audiences, no studying required!

Come see what the excitement is all about at the Athena Cinema’s next Science on Screen event. You can also check out our previous pairings in our listings below or on the official Science on Screen website here.


Science on Screen is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.


Free admission is sponsored by Arts for Ohio.
