SCI-FI CLASSICS FILM SERIES – Two films remain in the University Libraries’ three-part film series featuring science fiction classics. Join us  in the May Gallery the following Wednesdays at 7 pm for popcorn, soft drinks, and vintage cinematic wonder!

  • March 30: The Blob (1958) – cult classic of gooey greatness… helped launch the careers of Steve McQueen and composer Burt Bacharach, whose bouncy title song is just one of this film’s many unexpected pleasures
  • April 20Solaris (1972) – a brilliantly original science-fiction epic that challenges our conceptions about love, truth, and humanity itself

All films are available from Kanopy Streaming. To request accommodations for individuals with disabilities, please call Joan Stahl at 202-319-6473 or email stahlj@cua.edu.
