Cambridge Science Festival: Contact! 2017

Friday, April 14 – Sunday, April 16, 2017

In celebration of this year’s Cambridge Science Festival, the Brattle is pleased to present a brief program of films in which the aliens actually do ‘come in peace.’ It’s easy to be overwhelmed by blockbuster sci-fi flicks featuring bombastic scenes of world landmarks being blown to bits by aggressive E.T.’s – but let’s not forget those times when the visitors have been enigmatic messengers, curious explorers, or even fun-loving stoners. Please join us for some fun from the stars with this survey of (relatively) benign aliens.
