The Collider's Free Monthly Film Series Continues


The Collider

The Collider’s monthly movie night, presented by Oskar Blues Brewery and featuring films related to climate change and the environment, continues on Tuesday, June 27th, at the nonprofit innovation center in downtown Asheville. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.; the program begins at 7PM. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public. Popcorn and a selection of Oskar Blues beers will be provided.

The film this month is "Flight of the Butterflies,"a natural history epic, concluding National Pollinator Month with Collider partners Bee City USA. 

"Flight of the Butterflies" is scientific adventure at its best. It took Dr. Fred Urquhart almost 40 years to discover the monarch butterflies’ secret hideaway and prove the most incredible migration on Earth. Following the year-long annual migration cycle of the butterflies, the award-winning production team filmed hundreds of millions of monarchs in their remote overwintering sanctuaries in Mexico in 2011 and again in 2012 and also along their migratory routes from Canada, across the U.S. and into Mexico.

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. It is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Access to the building for evening events is through the glass door facing Patton Ave., around the corner from the ATM machine.
