Tremors at the Music Box Theatre

Join The Field Museum at the Music Box Theatre for a special film screening that will dig into the science behind the movie "Tremors." Tim is a PhD student studying fish at the University of Chicago and The Field Museum. Before that, he went to the University of Minnesota, which was a nice change of pace from the desert where he grew up—for one thing, it has a lot more fish. But sometimes when he gets nostalgic for the desert he watches movies like Tremors or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
