History of the Future Film: The Lawnmower Man



This summer we’re proud to present a film series examining gripping cinematic visions of the future emanating from different moments in recent history. Join us at FilmBar in Downtown Phoenix on the last Thursday of every month this summer, May through August, for The History of The Future: a series of delightfully schlocky, thought-provoking films paired with smart conversation from big thinkers and experts.

On July 28, we’ll be screening 1992’s The Lawnmower Man. In the film, a scientist turns a simple gardener into a genius through experiments with intelligence enhancing drugs and virtual reality.

Each History of the Future event begins at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $6 apiece, and include your first drink free. Buy tickets today!

Other History of the Future film events will take place at Filmbar on June 30 (Outland) and August 25 (Equilibrium)
