South Florida Museum hosts "Science on the BIg Screen"

   The South Florida Museum in Bradenton has a very cool Friday night film series going on through mid-December.
   "Science on the Big Screen" offers some great films with a science theme, ranging from sci-fi classics such as the 1960 version of "The Time Machine" to last year's excellent documentary "Particle Fever."

   The films are screened in the Bishop Planetarium. The planetarium got a new, very high-tech projection system not long ago, and the quality is remarkable. It's a cool place to see a movie because it's inexpensive ($5, or $3 for museum members) and you can buy beer or wine in the lobby and bring it into the theater.
   The films start at 6 p.m. It's a good idea to make paid reservations in advance. Call 941-746-4131.
   The museum is at 201 10th St. W., Bradenton.
