MIT Museum Movie Night: "The Impossible" (2012, PG-13)
Join the MIT Museum for fun flicks and lively conversation in the comfort of your own home. You supply the popcorn, and we'll invite the MIT researchers ready to discuss the movie's subject matter with insight and humor. Everyone watches the movie on their own devices/services while chatting in a concurrent Zoom webinar.

We will watch "The Impossible," a 2012 film set during the massive 2004 earthquake and Indian Ocean tsunami. Our guest researcher is Dr. Nathan Becker from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

In this disaster movie based on a true story, a British family’s Christmas vacation in Thailand becomes a terrifying nightmare when a tsunami roars inland, destroying everything in its path. The movie depicts the tsunami with remarkable accuracy and visceral terror.

PLEASE NOTE: The MIT Museum cannot stream these movies directly. Participants will need to stream, rent, or purchase the films themselves, or simply join us for the discussion.
