SoS – Monty Python

Tonight is the Science on Screen presentation of MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL which features a pairing of rapid fire scientific presentations along with a very silly film.

Presenting Our Round Table of Scholars:

  • Dr. Amy Dressel discusses of the sustainability of life after repeated “flesh wounds”
  • Dr. Scott Gende to waxes poetic on the ontogeny of frugivores laden with tropical nuts
  • Not-Quite-A-Dr. Terrance Schwarz allocutes on druidic buoyancy and other water-type situations
  • Sir Chris Mertl holds court on proper types (one that looks nice and is not too expensive) of shrubbery
  • Lord Ben Collman expatiates on the necessary torque, velocity, and pitch required for proper bovine projecting

Also there will be coconut shells for banging and flying birds. And sing-alongs. And you are encouraged to quote your nerdy little head off!!
PLEASE NOTE: We will have thee other screenings of this title this coming weekend, but they will be at regular ticket prices. Schedule forthcoming in Thursday’s email!
