While those demonstrations snare viewers attention—Keith reveals the science behind the magic, unfolding the "how-to" like a mystery, making it both educational and unforgettable.  For all ages.

Janet Shalstrom’s drawings reflect her origins in the countryside. An exploration of landscapes, they express the experience of looking within that landscape and finding that we can begin to see yet more worlds within one small sector of the larger world. Julianne Martin hopes her viewers will experience her paintings in a way that is similar to looking at the surface of water. From emptiness and depth rushes a true focus. The public is welcome to attend the reception, refreshments will be served.

The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures. This compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong. Rated PG-13. Runtime 118 minutes.
