Winter Film at the Hop

Hop Film Now

Virtual cinema continues at the Hop this winter. How? Why? Because Science.

We've all taken a much greater interest in science, medicine and technology this pandemic year — and film remains a great delivery vehicle for scientists to share breakthroughs and concerns with the general public.

This Science on Screen® series explores innovative storytelling around scientific themes, from using life-size puppets to connect with Alzheimer's patients (Our Time Machine), to issues of racial bias in computing (Coded Bias), to developments in alternative energy (2040) and gender transition surgery (Born to Be). Keep an eye out for intros by Dartmouth faculty, presentations and discussions designed to bring folks from across campus — STEM, the arts and humanities — to engage in dialogue around these films.

But you can also look forward to the usual mix of movies that push the boundaries of the art form, inspire action around social justice issues and connect us all through powerful storytelling. Tune into the heart-stopping Breaking Surface, the compelling Australian Dream, the swoony Monsoon, the madcap Weasels' Tale and the bonkers Twentieth Century to keep the winter blues at bay. 

Every Thursday, two movies will "open" for a weeklong run, available for you to watch 24/7. Patrons purchase a ticket on the Hop website and are given a secure link to watch the film through Eventive. We are also continuing our popular #SmallScreenFun series, featuring live chats with filmmakers and actors.

Tickets: $8 public; $5 Dartmouth employees; Free for Hop Members & Dartmouth students. Not a Member? Join Today >
