Science Movie Night: CONTAGION

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 - 6:30pm
The City Library - 210 East 400 South, Salt Lake City, Utah

CONTAGION follows the rapid progress of a lethal airborne virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving epidemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. At the same time, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart. 

Join us following the film for a discussion of the real-world risks of modern day plagues with Matthew Mulvey, Associate Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology Department, University of Utah.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh

Run time: 105 minutes

Rated PG-13, however, recommended for mature audiences due to disturbing content and images.


Science Movie Night is presented by the Natural History Museum of Utah in partnership with the Utah Film Center. We thank the Salt Lake City Public Library, our presenting sponsor.

This event is free and open to the public.
