Theory of Everything still from the film.

Science on Screen: Theory of Everything

About Science on Screen 2018/19

This autumn and winter the Francis Crick Institute presents Science on Screen, a series of compelling dramas with a science twist.

Come along to enjoy top-notch films, complimentary popcorn, and explore the themes featured in the films with speakers from the Crick and beyond.

All screenings will be free but tickets must be booked in advance via Eventbrite. Tickets will be released four to six weeks before each event.

Theory of Everything

In the 1960s, Cambridge University student and future physicist Stephen Hawking falls in love with Jane Wilde. At 21, Hawking learns that he has motor neurone disease. Despite this – and with Jane at his side – he begins an ambitious study of time, of which he has very little left, according to his doctor.

He and Jane defy terrible odds and break new ground in the fields of medicine and science, achieving more than either could hope to imagine.

This screening will be followed by a ‘Crick in conversation’, where visitors will have the chance to discuss the themes of the film with researchers from the Crick and beyond.  

This event has been organised in collaboration with We Are Ageing Better.

Age guidance: Recommended for 12+
