In the interest of preserving public health during the growing COVID-19 outbreak, this program has been cancelled.  This aligns with CDC recommendations to practice social distancing and avoid large group gatherings.

In honor of Albert Einstein’s birthday and Pi Day, join us for a screening of the film “IQ,” most of which was filmed in Princeton. Following the movie, there will be an Open Archive displaying items from the production. Filmed in 1994, “IQ” is a romantic comedy set in the 1950s featuring Walter Matthau as Einstein, playing matchmaker for his niece (Meg Ryan). Free; registration is not required. 

The Historical Society of Princeton’s Open Archive series allows visitors to interact with little-seen artifacts and documents from its vast collection. Featuring a different theme each time, these events present historical material with minimal interpretation and encourage visitors to make observations, ask questions, and be the historian themselves. HSP’s curator of collections and research will be on hand to share information and answer questions.
