On Campus

You won’t even read this until the next day, over to the right, when some stuff is actually happening.

Off Campus

Science on Screen: Donnie DarkoCoolidge Corner Theatre290 Harvard St.Brookline, Massachusetts

The Boston area is filled with academic superstars – so why not bring them to the movies? With Science On Screen, the Coolidge presents a feature film or documentary with a basis in science, along with exciting introductions by noted scientists in a related field. Donnie Darko involves a guy going crazy–maybe. Makes sense then to bring in guest speaker Bruce M. Cohen, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Cohen is Director of the Shervert Frazier Research Institute and the Stanley Research Center at McLean Hospital and will talk all about brain scanning and stuff like that.
