Have you ever wondered if something in a movie could really ever happen? Join Salt Lake County Library and the Natural History Museum of Utah for three fun movie nights and meet a variety of experts who will “Debunk the Junk” from these movies:
Mimic (July 18)
In Manhattan, cockroaches are spreading the deadly "Strickler's Disease" that is claiming hundreds of the city's children. Entomologist, Susan Tyler uses genetic engineering to create what she and her colleague (and husband) Peter Mann call the Judas Breed, a large insect that releases an enzyme that kills off the disease carrying roaches by speeding up their metabolism. The Judas Breed works spectacularly and the crisis is abated. The released population is all female and designed with a lifespan of only a few months, so that it will only last one generation.
An NHMU Entomologist will join us with specimens and post-film questions and answers.
* August 21 – Little Shop of Horrors
