The KU Natural History Museum Student Advisory Board invites the public to a free screening of the 1999 horror flick “Bats,” 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 7th at the museum, 1345 Jayhawk Blvd.
This campy thriller about genetically modified bats on the loose will be followed by brief analysis and a question and answer session led by Bob Timm, Curator of Mammals. Refreshments will be provided.
The film is the second in the student board’s new film series, “Myths and Mayhem.” The series explores the embellishments popular culture adds to real natural phenomena for dramatic, suspenseful, horrific (and sometimes comic) effect. Each event features a guest expert to guide the audience through the fact and fiction woven into popular science fiction or horror films. The last film of the semester will be the storm-chaser thriller “Twister” on April 11.
