Dune (2021) movie promo

Movies on the Field presented by 365 Community Union will be showing the award-winning 2021 film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 thought-provoking bestseller "Dune" on Friday, Jan. 21, to kick off the spring program, which will show a movie on the third Friday of each month at Sun Devil Stadium.

This event and future spring 2022 Movies on the Field events are complementary and open to the Arizona State University community and the general public. 

The movie will start at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m. Guests should bring their blankets, family and friends along to enjoy "Dune" under the stars and on one of the biggest screens in Tempe. RSVP here.

The "Dune" event is presented in partnership with ASU’s Interplanetary Initiative, which creates private-public partnerships and drives a positive human space future for exploration by finding the key needs and filling them with interdisciplinary teams.

Arrive early to hear from former NASA astronaut and retired U.S. Air Force Col. Catherine “Cady” Coleman, as she answers attendee questions about space exploration, living on Mars and taking trips to other galaxies. Coleman is ASU’s Global Explorer in Residence, professor of practice in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and co-host of Interplanetary Initiative’s podcast, "Mission: Interplanetary." She has logged more than 180 days in space, including two space shuttle missions and a six-month expedition to the International Space Station, where she acted as the lead robotics and lead science officer. Attendees can submit questions online prior to the film screening to be answered at the event. 

In addition to the pre-show Q&A, Interplanetary Initiative and the School of Earth and Space Exploration will be at the south plaza as attendees arrive to lead family-friendly interactive activities.
