Reel Science: The Princess Bride

with Oregon Fencing Alliance

Watch and learn at The Empirical Theater as OMSI brings the science of your favorite movies to life on the big screen. Perfect for science and film lovers alike, this monthly series combines the best Science Pub with the fun of movie night, bringing in experts to amplify your movie-watching experience.

Join us for a fun evening of swordplay, giants and a beautiful princess. Before the movie, Oregon Fencing Alliance will demonstrate to you some swashbuckling and fencing actions. Oregon Fencing Alliance is a world renowned club right here in Portland OR with over 45 World Championship medals. Mariel Zagunis, 2 -time Olympic Gold Medalist of both Athens and Beijing Olympics and the 2012 London Olympics USA Team Flag Bearer started fencing at OFA at age 10. We are hoping Mariel will join us here with her club-mates to teach you a little about the classic sport.
