Invaders from Mars – smARTfilms: They’re Out There! Series
Past Event

Since the dawn of time, we have been speculating whether we are alone in the cosmos. Fortunately, the film industry has answered that question even though science has not.

Join us to see how Hollywood has depicted encounters with those from other worlds in our sci-fi series They’re Out There!

At BIMA, we are dedicated to inspiring curiosity and wonder—and following it wherever it leads. This month, follow us on a journey off planet!
