Starting this fall, Science North is hosting two events created for their 50+ demographic that will include a morning walk in the science centre, followed by coffee, tea, and snacks alongside a movie in the IMAX theatre and capped off with an informative talk by a guest speaker.
The first “Cinema Social” will take place Sept. 27 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will feature the film “Jane Goodall – Reasons for Hope” as well as a talk by iconic Science North Bluecoat Franco Mariotti.
The second event will take place Oct. 25 and will include the same lineup with a different guest speaker: the film’s producer and director, David Lickley. Tickets are $22 and can be purchased at sciencenorth.ca or in-person at Science North.
Guests at the Cinema Social events can look forward to two experiences not available to visitors during regular operating hours; an exclusive 30-minute stroll through the science centre before the doors open and an informative talk related to the IMAX film.
Franco Mariotti will discuss Dr. Jane Goodall’s revolutionary work in what is now Gombe Stream National Park and how it has impacted the study of other animals and our understanding of human behaviour. David Lickley will focus on the filming process including behind-the-scenes stories.
“Jane Goodall - Reasons for Hope” had its world premiere at Science North on May 30, and is the science centre’s seventh giant screen film.
The film takes audiences on a global journey to showcase good news stories that reinforce Jane's four pillars of hope: the resilience of nature, the power of youth, the indomitable human spirit, and the amazing human intellect. It also includes Sudbury’s very own regreening story.
