Big Hero 6 and Discussion 

When: Fri., Dec. 29, 8 p.m. 2017
Price: $2-$5

How to teach our children well about living in the coming world of robot overlords? Why, treat them to a Disney movie! This screening of Big Hero 6, the vaguely Marvel Comics-inspired CGI film about a delightful, squishy inflatable robot and the boy who must use him to help save the day, features a Q and A afterward with Aaron Poteate, co-coordinator of the N.C. Museum of Natural Science's Visual World Investigate Lab, which explains such concepts as scientific visualizations and augmented reality. Poteate will help sort out the science behind the movie, the future of artificial intelligence, and what will happen when the singularity hits and machines evolve beyond us, wipe us out with our own weapons, and imprison the survivors in the Matrix and—I'm sorry, my editor says I need to go take my pills again now. Anyway, fun for the whole family! There's also a chance, starting at 5:30, to play with science stations before the movie at 7; Skip Elsheimer of the A/V Geeks brings the trivia and sarcastic remarks. —Zack Smith
