Cinema Meets Science at Impression 5 Science Center
FREE but space is limited: RSVP now! This session includes an Impression 5 Science Center Day Pass and all materials.
The fifth annual Capital City Film Festival is partnering with Impression 5 Science Center to present a FREE family-friendly event! Dress up like your favorite movie character and join us as we explore the art and science of cinema. Activities are inspired by films featured in CCFF’s pop-up theater that will play throughout the day for all visitors.
Who Should Attend:
These activities are geared to a K-5 audience and parents are encouraged to RSVP to participate. Ideal for family teamwork and independent explorers alike.
10:00am – NOON
– CCFF’s Pop-Up Theater. Featuring shorts for families, this series is presented in a loop all day, to accommodate attention spans and film interests of all ages.
– Saturday Morning Cereal Bar. Colors, shapes, textures and flavors combine in a Saturday Morning tradition, so come hungry!
– Film Fest Flipbooks. Fast and fun, it’s easy to create an animated short of your own using a flipbook.
– Get creative and a bit messy with hands-on science that explores the concept of water and oil not mixing, making art with the science of immiscible liquids, inspired by the film Simorgh.
– The fun continues with creating your very own cardboard automation. This mechanical device only needs your creativity to come “alive!” Inspired by the film Little Darling – The Secret City.
In addition to the FREE morning family session, Impression 5 Science Center is hosting day-long access to the Pop-Up Theater featuring film shorts for families, as well as museum-wide exhibits and activities. So grab your best Harry Potter glasses or Katniss Everdeen bow (leave the arrows home), and join in a day of film and fun that’s anything but ordinary.
This event is supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
