The Lego Batman Movie
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble - LEGO Batman - stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from The LEGO Movie as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis stars as The Joker; Michael Cera as the orphan Dick Grayson, aka Robin; Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
"It's a story with heart, heady humor and action - parts that snap together, with a satisfying click, like, well, you know what." Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story | 3D
From Lucasfilm comes the first of the Star Wars standalone films, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an all-new epic adventure. In a time of conflict, a group of unlikely heroes band together on a mission to steal the plans to the Death Star, the Empire's ultimate weapon of destruction. This key event in the Star Wars timeline brings together ordinary people who choose to do extraordinary things, and in doing so, become part of something greater than themselves.
"A swiftly paced, rough-and-ready entertainment that, in anticipating the canonical events of A New Hope, manages the tricky feat of seeming at once casually diverting and hugely consequential." Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

Journey To Space | 3D
A celebration of space exploration, Journey to Space is a tribute to international cooperation in space research and a vision toward our near-term future beyond Earth’s orbit – a manned mission to Mars within a generation. Beautifully and inspiringly chronicling our history in space – including the shuttle program, MIR, the International Space Station and the Hubble telescope – Journey to Space recognizes these milestones in the context of our future in the cosmos, what we’ve learned, and how to apply this knowledge to deep space missions. The film takes audiences on a behind-the-scenes tour of the international effort to send astronauts to Mars within the next 20 years, culminating in a virtual voyage to the Red Planet. Dazzling and meticulous computer imagery depicts the new machines that will soon enter into our lexicon – Orion, Olympus, SLS rockets – spacecraft, habitats, landers, and vehicles necessary to achieve interplanetary travel, touchdown and colonization.
Journey to Space taps into the same human fervor and fascination that makes science fiction so popular, our unquenchable drive to explore and discover what lies beyond. This film, though, is not fiction. Mars is the next step in what will be an unending human odyssey to explore the cosmos. Journey to Space is about the next chapter, a vision certain to inspire today’s young explorers and dreamers. It is time to take the next great leap into space. It is time for our species, in the words of Carl Sagan, to “set sail across the cosmic ocean.” Next stop… Mars!

OMSI's presentation of Journey to Space is supported by the Portland Metro Toyota Dealers Association.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli'i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she's always sought: her own identity.
"An absolute delight, a lush, exuberant quest fable full of big musical numbers and featuring perhaps the most stunning visuals of any Disney film to date." Christopher Orr, The Atlantic

Science Pub Portland: Dark Matter
The Astronomical Evidence for Dark Matter
With Alison Crocker, D. Phil, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics at Reed College
Doors Open @ 5PM | $5 Suggested Donation
On the Universal stage, dark matter runs the show. It’s over four times more abundant than the familiar normal matter and is necessary for forming galaxies, like our own Milky Way, but we can’t see it or feel it and don’t know exactly what it is! So how are we so sure it exists?
In this talk, astrophysicist Alison Crocker will highlight the most convincing observations astronomers have made of dark matter. From the rotation of galaxies, to the motion of galaxies within clusters, to the bending of light through gravitational warping of space, many different observational data require dark matter for a good explanation. She will also explain how astronomical observations constrain some of the properties of dark matter - namely that it must move much slower than the speed of light and be very weakly interacting with normal matter and electromagnetic radiation.
Alison Crocker, D. Phil. is an assistant professor at Reed College where she teaches physics. She uses telescopes at all different wavelengths to study how star formation proceeds in nearby galaxies. She completed her D. Phil. at Oxford University in England as a Rhodes Scholar before post-doctoral research stints at the University of Massachusetts and the University of Toledo, OH. In addition to teaching and research, Alison loves running around the woods with a map and compass and has represented the US in five instances of the World Orienteering Championships.
Science Pub Mission is a monthly event that is open to anyone and everyone. No RSVP or scientifict background required.
