Join us for an entertaining and illuminating evening focusing on the super powers of some very, very, very small things! Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. (USA, 2015, 117 mins., color, DCP)

Dr. Sara E. Mason is an explorer of the tiny yet mighty world of nanomaterials. For 12 years she was a professor at the University of Iowa, teaching chemistry to thousands of students and co-authoring over 65 articles in scientific journals. In 2022, her collaborative style of using theory and modeling to tackle complex problems in nanoscience drew her to Brookhaven National Laboratory, where she now leads the Theory and Computation Group in the Center for Functional Nanomaterials. The group is driving the use of cutting-edge computational methods, including artificial intelligence, in the quest for discovering new materials in energy and technology. Sara is also a parent to two school-age kids, enjoys hiking/biking, and has a strong passion for making science accessible to all.

An initiative of the COOLIDGE CORNER THEATRE, with major support from the ALFRED P. SLOAN FOUNDATION.

Special Thanks to Brookhaven National Laboratory for making this event possible.
