Florida Museum Extends Hours to Host Vintage Films

The Florida Museum of Natural History will stay open until 10 p.m. Fridays in July as part of the University of Florida (UF) Creative B program to offer panel discussions at 7 p.m. and film screenings, followed by a Q&A session. Creative B, established in 2010, is a summer program for UF students that combines the resources and skills of many university departments. On July 7 and July 28, the museum will host a reception at 6 p.m.


Films include Things to Come on July 7, The Time Machine on July 14, Time After Time on July 21, and Back to the Future on July 28. In observance of the museum’s 100th anniversary, the films all incorporate a time-travel theme.


“It is a unique opportunity to speak to experts in the fields of special effects, science and science fiction,” says Tiffany Ireland, a Florida Museum educator. “There is nothing like it in Gainesville.”


Admission is free with student ID. Location: 3215 Hull Rd., on the UF campus. For more information, call 352-273-2061 or visit
