This semester we feature Climate Cinema instead of Science By The Glass events. Movies are followed by a short informal discussion to bring together members of our community with TTU faculty.
The movies are shown at the Alamo Draft House. The next movie is "Twister" on November 21, 2017, 7:30 PM. This is a 1996 movie starring Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt. It follows a team of storm chasers whose goal is to perfect an instrument that gathers large amounts of data inside a tornado. They compete with a different team that has more funds. It is set in Oklahoma.
Please join us for this thrilling movie!
