Family-friendly event is open to the public
Co-sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewery

The Collider's monthly movie night, presented by Oskar Blues Brewery and featuring films related to climate change and the environment, continues on Tuesday, March 28, at the nonprofit innovation center in downtown Asheville. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the program begins at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public (with a suggested donation). Popcorn and a selection of Oskar Blues beers will be provided.
The following two episodes of the award-winning series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” will be screened:

Episode 1: Collapse of the Oceans. In “Collapse of the Oceans" actor Josh Jackson travels to Australia and the Philippines to look at the impacts of climate change on our oceans.

Episode 2: Priceless. In “The Sixth Extinction,” former “Daily Show” correspondent Aasif Mandvi sets off on a quest to understand just how much of a threat climate change poses to endangered species. In “Price on Carbon" actor Nikki Reed explores what some believe to be the ultimate solution for climate change: putting a price on carbon.

“Oskar Blues Presents Movie Night at The Collider” is a family friendly event open to the public. Located at 1 Haywood St., on the top floor of the Wells Fargo building in downtown Asheville at Pritchard Park, The Collider is an innovation center focused on catalyzing climate solutions.
