Cephalopod Movie Night with Science Friday!

June 18, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join the Science Friday crew to celebrate Cephalopod Week with libations, live performances, and an immersion into the underwater world of these strange tentacled creatures.

Join for an evening of talk, tentacles, and merriment, featuring four original short films from Science Friday at Public Works, never been shown in Chicago before. This evening is your chance to rub elbows with Science Friday Events Manager Rachel Bouton and other local ceph-xperts. Ask them anything you want to know about these amazing, adaptive, and sometimes creepy creatures!

You’ll join other Atlas Obscura Society members and Science Friday listeners for this very special screening, sip the specialty cephalopod-themed cocktails, delight in a live performance by vintage-style musician Plucky Rosenthal, and¬†engage in riveting conversation as you enjoy scenes of giant octopus attacks from 1950s cult film.
