An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies - The Sequel
#1 Science Event of the Year
From "The Wizard of Oz" to "Mary Poppins" to "Interstellar," this show is an entertaining and enlightening review of all the science that our favorite movies got wrong, combined with some of the stuff they got right. An Astrophysicist Goes to the Movies - the Sequel incorporates the latest films as well as some classics that you may not have known had any science in them at all.

For many concert, comedy, and special events at DPAC, we offer added views of the stage with two big screens (size: 16’ x 9’) hung to the sides of the stage or above the stage. These big screens can add to the visual experience of our concert, comedy, and special events and give guests seated farther from the stage what we like to call “a tenth row view”. Approval to use these screens always rests with the visiting show and about half of all concert and comedy events do use these screens.
The VIP package includes a signed poster and a meet and greet photo opportinuty with Dr. Tyson. Further details will be emailed closer to show date.
