o to the movies and learn something. The Science on the Screen series at the Coolidge Corner Theatre features a pre-movie talk by an expert in whatever science or technology is covered by the film: Dirty Harry preceded by a forensic scientist, for instance, Night of the Living Dead by a Harvard psychologist on brain function, and Raiders of the Lost Ark (whose theme was written by Boston Pops conductor John Williams) by an archeologist who claimed that real archeologists don’t carry whips. All in the spectacularly restored 1933 art deco theater.
