Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Ocean
Jean-Michel Cousteau, son of ocean pioneer Jacques Cousteau, offers a breakthrough look at a secret world within the ocean that is perhaps the biggest story of all—that the smallest life in the sea is the mightiest force on which we all depend. Alongside marine biologist Holly Lohuis, he invites viewers to dive into this whole new world that will leave them in awe of the beauty and diversity of the oceans – the source of all life on our planet – and inspire an even stronger desire to protect what they have either seen for the first time or perhaps re-discovered along the journey.
Narrated by renowned oceanographer Dr. Sylvia Earle, Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Secret Oceanintroduces audiences to over 30 species, illuminating behaviors captured for the first time thanks to the development of new tools that allow underwater filming in ultra-HD 5K, slow motion, macro, and with motion control, and takes them to remarkable and vibrant environments such as the Bahamas, Fiji, and Bimini.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
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

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon, a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike, a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena, a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita, an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash, a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
Sing features the voice talents of Academy Award® winners McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, alongside Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.

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. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks and knowledge! For more information or to sign up for our mailing list, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
