It’s Not An Escapist Fantasy Anymore…Because This Time They’re Really Trying To Escape!

Yuta and Rikka may have finally started to come to terms with the various delusions that have run their lives, but as their relationship becomes progressively more real, their development as a couple seems to be increasingly in danger of stalling out!

When your relationship is partially the result of a series of fantasies, what can reality serve up that’s equal to the make-believe? Rikka’s sister decides that she’s going to move to Italy and take Rikka with her, and the solution that Rikka and Yuta decide on is both improbably logical and unrealistically practical: They’re going to elope! For real!

Get ready for the ultimate fantasy road trip as our two young would-be lovers take off a whirlwind tour of the real Japan in Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! -Take On Me-

In Japanese with English subtitles.

SCIENCE ON TAP - EINSTEIN'S MONSTERS

SCIENCE ON TAP - EINSTEIN'S MONSTERS

Science on Tap is a science lecture series where you can sit back, enjoy a pint, and laugh while you learn. Listen to experts talk about the science in your neighborhood and around the world. You don’t have to be a science geek to have fun—all you need is a thirst for knowledge!

EINSTEIN'S MONSTERS: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF BLACK HOLES

We think we know black holes. They’ve become a fixture of our pop cultural conception of outer space, from Star Trek to Interstellar. But the reality of black holes is just as wonderful and strange as anything a science fiction writer could dream up. Black holes are the most extreme objects in the universe, yet every galaxy harbors a black hole at its center. This profound discovery to inspires questions at the cutting edge of cosmology, such as: Which came first, the galaxy or its central black hole? What happens if you travel into a black hole?

At this Science on Tap, Dr. Chris Impey will talk about his new book Einstein’s Monsters, which presents the astonishing science of black holes and their role in understanding the history and future of our universe. Come hear an epic story of black holes, from their explosive births as dying stars to their slow deaths by evaporation, and a very human story of our drive to understand the universe, our place in it, and how it all began.

Chris Impey, PhD, is a distinguished professor in the Department of Astronomy at the University of Arizona and the critically acclaimed author of Beyond, How It Began, and How It Ends, as well as two astronomy textbooks. Books will be available for sale and signing courtesy of Vintage Books.

Advance tickets are $9, day of show tickets $10.

MUSIC AND THE AGING BRAIN: A DISCUSSION AND CONCERT

At this event, learn from Dr. Larry Sherman, a musician and Professor of Neuroscience at the Oregon Health & Science University, and singer/songwriter Naomi LaViolette as they explore how listening, practicing, and performing music influence the brain, and how these activities could impact brain aging and disease. They will also discuss Naomi’s work as a pianist, vocalist, arranger, and composer with Steven Goodwin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and the Saving His Music project, which has received prominent coverage in national and local news.

Join us and enjoy a multi-media presentation that combines live music and visuals with discussions about cutting edge science. Both Dr. Sherman and Ms. LaViolette will be performing live music ranging from Debussy, Leonard Cohen, and the Beatles to original pieces by Ms. LaViolette and Steven Goodwin.

THE DAWN WALL

THE DAWN WALL

Not Rated

In January, 2015, American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000 foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention. But for Tommy Caldwell, The Dawn Wall was much more than just a climb. It was the culmination of a lifetime defined by overcoming obstacles.

At the age of 22, the climbing prodigy was taken hostage by rebels in Kyrgyzstan. Shortly after, he lost his index finger in an accident, but resolved to come back stronger. When his marriage fell apart, he escaped the pain by fixating on the extraordinary goal of free climbing The Dawn Wall. Blurring the line between dedication and obsession, Caldwell and his partner Jorgeson spend six years meticulously plotting and practicing their route. On the final attempt, with the world watching, Caldwell is faced with a moment of truth.

Members of Source Climbing Gym can get tickets at the gym for just $12. General admission is $15 advance. All seats $18 day of show.
