Free

This screening will take place outdoors at Las Milpitas Community Farm, 2405 S Cottonwood Ln, Tucson, AZ 85713. Please bring your own seating (chairs and blankets). Geronimo’s Revenge food truck will be on site starting at 6:30pm. Suggested donation is $5 per family, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

This event is part of Science on Screen, an initiative of the Coolidge Corner Theatre, in partnership with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Thanks to our community partners, Las Milpitas Community Farm of the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona, and Pima County Food Alliance (PCFA).

Featuring an introduction by Sergio Avila-Villegas, Conservation Research Scientist and Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. Film introduction begins at 6:30pm; film begins by 7:00pm.

In the animated action/comedy Rango, Johnny Depp provides the voice of the title character, a kooky pet chameleon who gets tossed into a wild and raucous western town in desperate need of a hero. Through a series of comical misadventures, Rango is appointed sheriff of this lawless outpost (a town so tough it’s just called “Dirt”), but the question is: can one unprepared and completely unqualified chameleon possibly change this little town’s future for the better? Filled with goofy characters, humorous action and comical parodies of classic Spaghetti Westerns, Rango is an animated treat for the whole family.

Sergio Avila-Villegas is the Regional Outdoors Coordinator for the Sierra Club. He is responsible for designing and directing volunteer recruitment and training programs that support and enhance Sierra Club local level outdoors programming. His goal is to increase the number and diversity of people connected to nature throughout the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah and Nevada. Previously, Sergio worked as a Conservation Research Scientist with the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, where he led collaborative efforts on connectivity for wildlife, habitat restoration, education and interpretation in the Sonoran Desert region of Sonora, Baja California and Arizona. Sergio graduated from the University of Baja California with a Master’s degree in Arid Lands Management, and the University of Aguascalientes with a B.S. in Biology. For over sixteen years, Sergio has gained extensive training and experience working in remote areas of northwest Mexico and the U.S. southwest on wildlife conservation and research, and on challenges related to wildlife movement across the US-Mexico border.
