Event description

Description

One disturbingly informative museum curator, one classic 90’s B-movie, and the battle they were born to fight. This is: Anna vs The Relic.

The College of Physicians is thrilled to present the 1997 cult classic monster-in-a-museum film The Relic, screened in its entirety, followed by a discussion with special guest, Kyle Cassidy, and Anna Dhody, curator of the Mütter Museum, about what The Relic does and doesn’t get right about running a museum with over a century’s worth of often-bizarre specimens on the shelves. Laugh, learn and (knowing Anna) cringe at what goes on behind the scenes of the Mütter. Included with this ticket is exclusive after-hours access to the Museum itself! There will be light snacks and a cash bar.

Mütter Museum admission is included in the ticket price and the museum will be open from 5:30-6:30. There will be a cash bar and complimentary snacks. The film screening will begin promptly at 6:40 and end around 8:30. Live commentary during the movie with Anna Dhody, curator of the Mütter Museum, and author/photographer, Kyle Cassidy. Q&A to follow.
