The Eureka Theater will present a National Evening of Science on Screen, featuring the 2010 film “Obselidia,” Thursday evening.
A Sundance Film Festival award winner, the movie follows a nostalgic librarian cataloging obsolete occupations. While traveling to Death Valley, he partners with a silent film projectionist to meet an eccentric scientist predicting the end of the world.
Preceding the film, a panel of local librarians will discuss their experiences in the world of information science and how libraries have helped information become more accessible in the digital age.
Tickets to the event are $5. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The panel discussion is at 7 p.m. and the movie starts at 8 p.m.
Science on Screen is an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, with major support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
The Eureka Theater is located at 612 F St.
