The Science of the Cinema

Listen 51:39

Now for our feature presentation: we’re going to explore the science of movie magic as seen on the big screen and behind the scenes. We’ll take you back in time to hear the innovative explorations of sound in “Fantasia”, talk to Brad Pitt…kind of, explore old gold vaults full of film, and get bonked on the head, twice, for the sake of science.

Please silence your cell phones and enjoy the show.
