SoS_wordmark_FM Science on Screen® creatively pairs screenings of classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine. In 2011, the Coolidge Corner Theatre Foundation received a $150,000 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to expand Science on Screen® to independent cinemas nationwide. Over the past five years, the two organizations have awarded a total of 94 grants to 47 independent theaters for use in creating and presenting their Science on Screen® programming. IU Cinema is honored to be one of the 2016–2017 Science on Screen® award recipients.
