Reel Science: The Big Year says
Cinema science vs. the facts!

Two bird enthusiasts try to defeat the cocky, cut-throat world record holder in a year-long bird-spotting competition in 1998—the year El Nino brought an unprecedented number of species to North America. Their quest takes them on an unforgettable trek throughout North America. Introduction and post-film Q&A with Director of Science and Curator of Ornithology Dr. Andy Jones.

REEL Science is a monthly series in partnership with Cleveland Cinemas held from September through May. Watch films that tackle science on the silver screen—from stoically serious blockbusters to outrageously campy cult classics—and hear from Museum experts as they put these movies under the microscope to determine what the filmmakers got right... and what is better classified as “creative license.” Join us on this sometimes shocking, often hilarious and always illuminating journey into Reel Science! See the series schedule at
