PLAYING NOW -- January 24 - February 18, 2018
SILENT SKY
by 
Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Susan Myer Silton

Based on the true story and science of early 20th century female "computers" at Harvard Observatory, astonishing discoveries await Henrietta Leavitt as she maps distant stars in galaxies beyond our own. But this brilliant, headstrong pioneer must struggle for recognition in the man's world of turn-of-the-century astronomy. In this exquisite blend of science, history, family ties, and fragile love, a passionate woman must map her own passage through a society determined to keep a woman in her place.
