GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Explore the truth behind the mysterious creature that roams the Chicago Museum with Florida Museum of Natural History Molecular Lab Curator Pam Soltis as she dissects myth from reality in “The Relic” beginning at 8 p.m. March 30. Following the discussion, Florida Museum visitors are invited to view the R-rated horror film “The Relic.”

The new science movie night program is being held during Museum Nights, a collaboration among University of Florida Student Government, the Florida Museum of Natural History and the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art in which both museums are open from 5-10 p.m. on Thursday evenings.

Funded by UF Student Government, Museum Nights strives to increase student and community visitation at the UF Cultural Plaza, located near the intersection of Southwest 34th Street and Hull Road. It serves as an entertainment alternative for Thursday nights in Gainesville and offers individuals who are too busy during the day the opportunity to visit the museums in the evening.
