CLEVELAND (August 24, 2017) – Join Great Lakes Science Center for a cinema celebration during the next round of Take Two! Double Features at the Cleveland Clinic DOME Theater!
The late Roger Moore, who passed away earlier this year at the age of 89, made seven James Bond films between 1973 and 1985. Our September Take Two! on Saturday, September 23 looks at two of them, “The Spy Who Loved Me” (celebrating its 40th anniversary this year) at 6 p.m. and “Moonraker,” the highest grossing movie in Moore’s run as 007, at 8 p.m.
On October 28, we flash back to 1993 for a throwback Halloween celebration featuring “Hocus Pocus” at 6 p.m. and “Army of Darkness” at 8 p.m.
Thanksgiving week can be a marathon. Cooking and prepping the house for visiting family and friends, followed by a feeding frenzy and a race to find bargains on Black Friday. By Saturday, the guests are still hanging around and you’re running out of leftovers. Celebrate the enduring ties of family with two classic John Candy movies on Saturday, November 25. We’ll be showing “Uncle Buck” at 6 p.m. followed by “Planes, Trains & Automobiles” at 8 p.m.
Saturday, December 30 brings two modern holiday classics to the DOME with “Elf” at 6 p.m. followed by “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” at 8 p.m.
All eight films will be shown in industry standard picture ratio using a state-of-the art projection system and 11,600 watt digital sound system. Beer, wine and other concessions will be available. Tickets for all eight features are on sale now and are available online at GreatScience.com or by phone at 216-621-2400.
Tickets are $10 for a single movie, $9 per movie for two movies purchased together, or $7 per movie for three or more movies purchased together. Discounted parking is also available for $3 per night (when purchased in advance).
The one-Saturday-a-month Take Two! series was launched as part of the celebration for the grand re-opening of the DOME Theater following a $1.8 million renovation and digitization project.
The digital conversion and interior remodeling of the former OMNIMAX Theater was completed in 2016, and as part of the projection system upgrades, the theater can now show movies from any digital source, as opposed to films available only in 15/70 mm film prints.
(Editor’s note: The Science Center will switch to its fall/winter operating schedule on Saturday, September 16, which is Tuesday through Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays, and will be closed during all home Browns games. The Science Center will also be closed to the public for its semi-annual cleaning and maintenance period from Wednesday, September 6 through Friday, September 15.)
