We are in the midst of a global crisis of perspective. We have forgotten the undeniable truth that every living thing is connected. Planetary is a provocative and breathtaking wakeup call – a cross continental, cinematic journey, that explores our cosmic origins and our future as a species. It is a poetic and humbling reminder that now is the time to shift our perspective. Planetary asks us to rethink who we really are, to reconsider our relationship with ourselves, each other and the world around us – to remember that we are Planetary.

Reel Science – Empirical Theater is a new monthly event open to all ages. No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge! The Empirical Theater café will be open selling sausages, pizza, movie snacks, beer, wine and more.
