The Coolidge Corner Theatre Program, Science on Screen will kick off its 6th season with the film The Man in the White Suit, a satirical comedy about one Sidney Stratton (Aka “Guinness”), a Research Chemist and his ingenius invention of a fabric that never gets dirty and never wears out. This event will also feature guest speaker Marc Abrahams, Co-Founder and Editor of The Annals of Improbable Research science humor magazine and originator of the Annual Ig Nobel Prizes and Harvard Chemist Daniel Rosenburg, who will explore the logistics of creating such a material as described in the film. Rumor has it that Abrahams will honor an unbelievable but true achievement at the appearance by wearing a real self-perfuming suit.
