History of the Future: Rollerball

Event Details

Join ASU’s Center for Science and the Imagination in partnership with Majestic Neighborhood Cinema in Tempe to watch Rollerball on the silver screen. This screening is part our History of the Future film series, which explores gripping cinematic visions of the future across the past four decades. 

Join us in Tempe, Arizona on Wednesday, August 16 at 7:00 pm to take a step back to 1975 for a theatrical screening of Rollerball, the cult classic about a roller derby gone rogue in the far-off future year of 2018.

The film will be introduced by Matt Bell, author of the novel Appleseed (2021) and Refuse to Be Done (2022), an acclaimed craft book for writers. Matt is also a professor of English and creative writing at ASU.

Tickets are $8.00, plus applicable taxes and service charges. A limited number of free tickets for ASU students are available on a first-come, first-served basis, courtesy of your Imaginary Friends at CSI. Fill out this form to claim yours. You must be a currently enrolled ASU student and have an @asu.edu email address to claim a free ticket.

Be sure to arrive early to take advantage of Majestic’s dining experience and get your hands on a free, limited-edition History of the Future sticker!
