Cephalopod Movie Night with Science Friday - Atlas Obscura

Seattle, Washington

Cephalopod Movie Night with Science Friday

Join the Science Friday crew and local band The Mermen to celebrate Cephalopod week with libations and an immersion into the underwater world of these strange, tentacled creatures.

They’re quick, they’re clever, they’re masters of disguise and every year public radio program Science Friday dedicates a week to celebrating them. Cephalopod Week, Science Friday’s annual celebration of some of the smartest, most interesting invertebrates on Earth, is back, and Atlas Obscura and Science Friday are teaming up to make it a total cephalo-party.

Join us for an evening of talk, tentacles, and merriment, featuring four original short films from Science Friday at the Swedish Cultural Center. This evening is your chance to rub elbows with Science Friday Executive Director Danielle Dana and a special guest—and ask them anything you want to know about these amazing, adaptive, and sometimes creepy creatures.

You'll join other Atlas Obscura Society members and Science Friday listeners for this very special screening, and engage in riveting conversation as you enjoy scenes of giant octopus attacks from vintage cult film.

Additional Details:

  • This is a family-friendly event! 
  • IDs will be checked at the door for those who want to engage in libations, and a stamp will be used to designate those who over 21. 
  • The Route 62 local bus route drops off directly in front of the Swedish Club. Also, Route 5 and the E Line "Rapid Ride" buses stop at the Queen Anne exit on Aurora Avenue, a short walk from the Swedish Club.
