The History of the Future: The Truman Show

Event description

  • Arts and entertainment

Join ASU's Center for Science and the Imagination in partnership with Majestic Neighborhood Cinema in Tempe to view The Truman Show on the silver screen. This screening is part of a greater film series: The History of the Future, exploring gripping, cinematic visions of the future across the past four decades. 

Join us Wednesday, Oct 18. at 7 p.m. to take a step back to 1998 for a theatrical screening of The Truman Show. Visit Seahaven Island, where Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) is unaware his entire life is being filmed for a 24/7 reality television show. Watch him discover the truth about his world and break it down piece by piece.

The film will be introduced by CSI’s Communications and Public Engagement Manager, Bob Beard. Bob is co-curator for the History of the Future Film Series and specializes in taking the tools of speculative fiction and applying them to our own visions of the future.
