Cinema Sundays

April 21, 2001|By Chris Kaltenbach

"The Dish," a charming nougat of a film about a giant radio telescope stuck in the middle of nowheresville, Australia, used to beam back pictures of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon, is this weekend's offering for Cinema Sundays at the Charles Theatre.

Based on real events, the film stars Sam Neill as the scientist in charge of the 1,000-ton telescope.

The film was directed by Rob Sitch. Pierre Bely, chief engineer for the Next Generation Space Telescope, will serve as host for the screening, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Admission to Cinema Sundays is $15; four-film mini-memberships are available for $52. Free bagels and coffee will be served. Call 410-727-3463.-
