Time Details:
This movie and speaker series is planned for the second Saturday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Should you bring the kids to The Meg? Probably not the younger ones. This movie is rated PG-13 for intense adventure violence and some swearing. There are shark attacks and blood. Common Sense Media suggests it's for ages 14 and up, but parents and kids in families who chose to watch it would go younger.

Saturday, July 13, 2019

Come for the over-the-top movie, stay for the chance to ask a local scientist what the movie got right, and what it got so, so wrong. In today's disaster film, a massive creature previously thought to be extinct attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled, and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific. With time running out, a visionary oceanographer recruits rescue diver Jonas Taylor to save the crew and the sea itself from an unimaginable threat -- a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon.

Now Playing: 
A giant shark mouth appears underwater below a woman in a float tube.
Speaker:  HSU Marine Lab Director, Dr. Brian Tissot
