Science on Screen

The Science on Screen grant initiative celebrates science in movies nationwide.

Hop Film is part of a national network of theaters that celebrate the wonder of science in movies. To this end, we pair films with lively presentations by local experts from the world of science, technology and medicine. 

The Coolidge Corner Theatre's Science on Screen® series has enhanced film and scientific literacy with this popular program, which launched at the Coolidge in 2005. In partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and its pioneering nationwide film program, the Coolidge has expanded Science on Screen to 96 cinemas nationwide. Each film is used as a jumping-off point for a speaker to introduce current research or technological advances in a manner that engages popular culture audiences.
