Mega-Bad Movie Night: Anaconda

Thursday Feb 26 5:30 PM-9:00 PM

Join us at the Academy after hours to watch an “awesomely awful” movie. Witty experts will be onstage to offer their quips and sidesplitting comments on the many scientific absurdities—think Mystery Science Theater 3000!

In this edition of Mega-Bad Movie Night we'll be showing the 1997 classic Anaconda.

Our new Titanoboa: Monster Snake exhibit will be open and we'll even be feeding the live snakes in the exhibit at 6 pm! Plus, we'll have educators handling live snakes from our Live Animal Center as well special specimens from our herpetology collection on display!

Wander among the Academy’s famous exhibits such as Dinosaur Hall and Butterflies!­­—without kids! It’s a great place to meet fellow science nerds as you hang out with your friends. It’s even perfect for a Thursday date night!

In addition to the movie, Mega-Bad Movie Nights include:

  • Complimentary snacks
  • Beer and wine open bar (VIP Ticket only) 
  • Academy specimens
  • Live animals
  • Fun hands-on activities
