[Press release from Cleveland Cinemas and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.]
The REEL SCIENCE film series, presented by Cleveland Cinemas and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, continues with a screening of the sci-fi action film TOTAL RECALL (1990) starring Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday, August 12th at 7:00 PM at the Capitol Theatre (1390 W. 65th St., Cleveland, OH).
REEL SCIENCE presents films that do their best to tackle natural science on the silver screen – from stoically serious blockbusters to outrageously campy cult classics – and hear from Cleveland Museum of Natural History experts as they put these movies under the microscope to determine what the filmmakers got right and what would best be classified as “creative license.”
In TOTAL RECALL, Schwarzenegger stars as a man who has had his memories wiped. He thinks he’s just a mild-mannered husband until his wife (Sharon Stone) tries to kill him. He ventures to Mars to solve the mystery of who he is and finds himself quickly allied with the mutant rebels on the red planet.
The screening will feature an introduction and post-film discussion with by Jason Davis, Museum Astronomer and Educator.
TOTAL RECALL attendees can enjoy Happy Hour specials including $1 off beer and wine and $2 off the Capitol’s new signature cocktails.
