Total Recall Double Feature: 1990 and 2012
Friday, December 11, 6:00 pm
Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Colin Farrell, planetary scientists, astrobiologists, and legal scholars converge on Scottsdale for this night of film and conversation. Join us for back-to-back screenings of the modern science fiction classic Total Recall and presentations by ASU faculty who will link this thrilling tale of mistaken identities and Martian misadventures to their research.
A cash bar and concession stand will be available. The event will begin with presentations and Q+A with our speakers, then we will screen the 1990 and 2012 versions of Total Recall, in that order.
This is a free event. Tickets or reservations are not required.
More details are available at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
