Enzian is partnering with the Smithsonian Institute for a special screening of “The Black Hole” as a part of National Science on Screen Night on March 27, 2018.

The evening will feature a presentation by guest speaker Dr. Matthew Shindell, a historian of science whose work focuses on the history of the earth and planetary sciences, with an emphasis on the development of research programs in these fields during the Cold War.

He curates the Museum’s collection of spacecraft, instruments, and other artifacts related to the exploration and study of the solar system.

Following his presentation, the theater will show the Walt Disney Studios 1979 sci-fi classic “The Black Hole.”

The film is set in the future, as a spaceship dubbed the USS Palomino, on its way back to Earth, discovers another ship that had been assumed missing, the USS Cygnus. Kate McCrae (Yvette Mimieux), a scientist aboard the Palomino, learns that it’s the same ship upon which her father had served as a crew member. When the Palomino’s crew boards the Cygnus, they are met by Dr. Reindhardt (Maximilian Schell) and a bizarre, faceless army who plan to be the first people ever to explore a black hole.

The film is rated PG.
