This coming weekend is the Jules Verne Festival at The Edison and ImaginAsian in downtown Los Angeles, with a full program of adventure and science fiction movies. They will also be presenting two awards: the Jules Verne Nature Award to Roy E. Disney, with a special screening of Steamboat Willie, Fantasia 2000, and the new movie Morning Light; and the Jules Verne Achievement Award to Ron Moore with a tribute to Battlestar Galactica featuring special guest Edward James Olmos.
The biology connection? The closing event on Sunday, October 26, is "Planet of the Apes, 40-year Evolution". The movie will be introduced by Linda Harrison, who played Nova in the 1968 version of the movie.
At $10 for an all-day movie pass, it's a steal.
