The Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Science on Screen program, which has become a major success both locally and nationally, just announced that twenty more theatres will receive grants to participate in this innovative program. The grantees include independent theaters in Georgia; Florida; New York; Tennessee; New Mexico; and California that will soon launch their own Science on Screen programs pairing classic and feature film screenings with presentations by science and technology experts.

The program also provides a unique distribution platform for Sloan films because one of the three films shown annually at each theater must be a Sloan-winning film. The Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation is the recipient of a current two-year $480,000 Sloan grant to support the theater’s Science on Screen Program and expand its reach to another 40 theaters nationwide.
