Simon DeDeo (Omidyar Fellow, Santa Fe Institute)
Scientists love movies too. On Thursday evening, March 8, the SFI-CCA "Science On Screen" series begins with SFI's Simon DeDeo recontextualizing WarGames, the greatest cult film of the hacker generation.
In pre-screening remarks, DeDeo will reveal how the 1983 box office smash prodded our fears and imaginations, how our visions of the Internet have shifted during the past 20 years, and what insights the movie offers today for the digital age. His remarks will be followed by a screening of the movie, with questions and answers after the film.
Tickets for each screening are $9.50 for general admission, $8.50 for students/seniors, $8.00 for CCA members, and $7.00 for senior CCA members and children under 12. For advance tickets, call the CCA box office at 505-982-1338.
The event begins at 7:00 p.m. at Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, Santa Fe, NM
