The Reel Science Film Series (presented by Digital Gym Cinema and San Diego Natural History Museum) returns for its third edition with a new slate of science-fiction movies. Featured films will be paired with a local scientist who will provide contextualized and corrective feedback about the scientific themes presented at each screening. This week’s screening of DAMNATION ALLEY will feature commentary from Dr. Michael Wall, Vice President of Science and Conservation and Curator of Entomology for The Nat, prior to the film, followed by a Q&A session after the movie.
This screening will take place at the Digital Gym Cinema. Reel Science is made possible with an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theater, with major support from the Film Geeks San Diego and Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Synopsis: After a horrific nuclear assault, three soldiers band together in a special all-terrain land cruiser and head for Albany, NY-the only American city to be spared in the attack. As they travel through the post-nuke wastelands, they pick up a beautiful woman and an incorrigible teenager (Jackie Earle Haley) while battling mutant insects, packs of violent survivors and brutal electrical storms that savage the already barren plains.
