Sci-Fi Flick Series


All forms of science fiction have the power to excite our imaginations; just as the ideas explored in science fiction are built upon our current understanding of the world around us, so do they simultaneously influence that understanding.  With cinema, the unique worlds of science fiction become tangible.

Through our Sci-Fi Flicks series, we endeavor to inspire the imagination by navigating the rich history of science fiction in cinema.  Sci-Fi Flicks is an ongoing program at the Arthur C. Clarke center where we provide free screenings of select science fiction classics.  In addition to the screenings, we host a discussion of each film with featured guest speakers that range from notable science fiction authors, to people who were heavily involved with the film's production.

Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for announcements of upcoming Sci-Fi Flicks.
