March 28, 2017, Tuesday - National Evening of Science on Screen: "Life as a Titan: Godzilla and King Kong vs Nature" at St. Anthony Main Theatre

Time: 7:00pm

Location: St. Anthony Main Theatre, 115 Main Street SE

National Evening of Science on Screen Topic: "Life as a Titan: Godzilla and King Kong vs Nature"
Presenter: Kent Kirkby, PhD.

The two mightiest monsters of all time battle in the thrilling adventure classic, King Kong vs. Godzilla. When an underhanded pharmaceutical company goes to a remote tropical island to steal King Kong for advertising purposes, they get more than they bargained for when the gigantic ape attacks an unsuspecting village and an enormous octopus. Meanwhile, far below the sea, a submarine crew unleashes reptilian terror when they melt a block of ice and release the ferocious Godzilla from his icy lair. When both destructive monsters descend on Tokyo, it's a fight that holds the future of mankind in the balance in this knock-out film that was the first theatrical release to bring its larger-than-life contenders to the big screen in glorious color.

Hollywood loves a good monster fight. But for middle-aged monsters, like Godzilla and King Kong, fighting is easy, it's life that is hard. With increasing age, gravity and heat can become potent foes. So how would King Kong and Godzilla stack up against real life monsters, like the larger dinosaurs?
