The Insiders: The Discovery Center has a time machine? No, but it does show movies
Time travel is pretty hard. Despite our best efforts – which have thus far consisted of closing our eyes and spinning around as fast as possible while imagining a historic place to transport to, like the first Chipotle – our quest has been unsuccessful to date. But tonight everyone gets another shot when the McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center offers up Time Travel Night with a showing of Stargate.
We’re not certain whether you’ll actually be traveling back in time (current prediction: doubtful) but you will be watching the sci-fi time travel film that defeated six other flicks in a Facebook vote. But what happens if the six defeated films go back in time and stuff the Facebook ballot box? It’s okay if your mind is blown right now.
You might not believe this, but Kurt Russell plays a tough-minded military colonel in Stargate. It’s good to see him branching out from roles like the tough-minded stubble-bearded guy and the tough-minded sleeveless T-shirt wearing guy. General admission rates apply, but members are free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the movie, which is rated PG-13, beginning at 7 p.m.

You don’t have to puncture the space-time continuum to hear some sweet music tonight (although we’re thinking of taking a trip back to see Nirvana: Unplugged if you want to hop in the Delorean with us). Natalie Turgeon Band will grace the lobster stage at Makris Lobster House at 7:30 p.m. (editor’s note: The lobster stage is a thing we made up, but it totally should be a real thing).
