Interesting facts about the movie and its science will be discussed. During the intermission, conjure up your favorite Sagan lines and your fondest memories of the show that inspired millions! Look-alike contest prizes will be given to the people who best embody the essence of Dr. Sagan and his love of science...and humanity.

Doors open: 6 p.m. Show begins: 6:30 p.m.

Our capacity is 58 seats. We set aside 20 seats to accommodate those who arrive without a reservation, so if the show is sold out you can still try to attend by arriving close to 6 p.m. However, although we will do whatever we can to seat all comers, there is no guarantee of admission without a reservation.
