3 1. 2. This is an educational presentation and most members of the audience are here to listen and learn. Please do not use the next hour for social interaction. 3. If you must exit the room during the presentation, please use one of the rear doors and gently close it. The front doors are noisy and we request that use of the front doors be avoided. 4. At the conclusion of the formal presentation, there will be a 3 minute break to allow people to leave. However, please recognize that the question and answer period that will take place after the break is usually very interesting and informative. 5. We hope you enjoy the presentation and learn from it.

Following the movie, there will be a question and answer period led by the expert. Sunday, 01/27/13 Contact starring Jodie Foster as Dr. Ellie Arroway.
