Brattle Cambridge Science Festival Film Series: Contact!

April 14 - April 16

$8 - $11

In celebration of this year’s Cambridge Science Festival, the Brattle is pleased to present a brief program of films in which the aliens actually do ‘come in peace.’ The series runs opening weekend, Friday, April 14 – Sunday, April 16

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by blockbuster sci-fi flicks featuring bombastic scenes of world landmarks being blown to bits by aggressive E.T.’s – but let’s not forget those times when the visitors have been enigmatic messengers, curious explorers, or even fun-loving stoners. Please join us for some fun from the stars with this survey of (relatively) benign aliens.

All information and tickets: bit.ly/2oZUNtY

Friday, April 14: Arrival (4:30pm, 7:30pm, 9:30pm)

Saturday, April 15:   The Iron Giant (12pm, 2pm), Arrival (4pm), Gattaca (7pm), Paul (10pm)

Sunday, April 16: Contact (1:30pm, 6:30pm) double feature with The Day the Earth Stood Still (4:30pm, 9:30pm)
