What is the secret of Soylent Green? Join us on September 12* to find out! We’re back with our last movie of the summer to bring you more 1970s sci-fi fun along with food trucks and hands-on activities.

In a densely overpopulated, starving New York City of the future, NYPD detective Robert Thorn (Charlton Heston) investigates the murder of an executive at rations manufacturer Soylent Corporation. With the help of elderly academic Solomon "Sol" Roth (Edward G. Robinson), Thorn begins to make real progress -- until the governor mysteriously pulls the plug. Obsessed with the mystery, Thorn steps out from behind the badge and launches his own investigation into the murder.

Starting at 6:30pm go inside the National Academy of Sciences Building for activities related to food, climate, and other themes from the movie. At 7:30pm, head outside to the NAS West Lawn for interactive trivia and the movie.

Pack a picnic, bring a blanket, and we'll see you there!
