THE POLLINATORS, Cine
Ciné is proud to participate in this year's SCIENCE ON SCREEN, a grant initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, that creatively pairs current, classic, cult, and documentary films with lively introductions by notable figures from the world of science, technology, and medicine. See below for this year's lineup of films and events:
Tuesday March 10
Screening and Discussion 7:30pm
Join us at 7:00 pm for a reception with honey tastings from Dan Long, a Georgia Master Beekeeper and President of Eastern Piedmont Beekeepers Association. Enjoy appetizers and baklava made with local honey by International Grill and Bar, or try a honey-based cocktail from the cash bar. There will be plenty of beekeepers on site to chat with and be sure to see the teaching and observation hives, and have a selfie taken with the queen bee! We'll move to the theater at 7:30 pm for a brief lecture by Dr. Lewis Bartlett entitled "One bee, two bee, dead bee, doomed bees?"
Dan Long is an Athens, GA mail order nursery owner who is passionate about beekeeping. He received his Georgia Master Beekeeper certification and is currently the President of Eastern Piedmont Beekeepers Association and volunteer beekeeper for Sandy Creek Nature Center. Founded in 2010, his Tallassee Highlands Apiary produces honey and promotes beekeeping success through volunteering, lecturing and sharing of skills and knowledge.
