Historical Society News:
 
Join the Los Alamos Historical Society April 10 for the first film of this year’s Atomic Film Series at 7 p.m. in historic Fuller Lodge. The Atomic Film Series fosters discussion about the ways we continue to live with atomic legacies. Grab some fresh-popped popcorn in the lobby when you arrive, and then settle in for a great movie you won’t see anywhere else. There is a suggested donation of $5.
 
We can’t tell you the title of the April 10 film here, but we can tell you it’s an absurdist, post-apocalyptic comedy written by Spike Milligan and John Antrobus.
 
Milligan is joined by Goon Show co-star Harry Secombe and an ensemble cast including Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, and Marty Feldman in his screen debut. Survivors of a nuclear war go about their lives in London, even as they begin mutating into unusual objects and animals. The film is rated PG-13. It’s a great watch for fans of Dr. Strangelove and Monty Python.
 
The Atomic Film Series continues with the documentary Containment July 10 as part of ScienceFest and an atomic monster movie Oct. 30.
 
Learn more about the Atomic Film Series at the Historical Society’s website, losalamoshistory.org. All three films will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Pajarito Room of
Fuller Lodge, 2132 Central Avenue.
