For this month’s Final Friday, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences will be showing “Anaconda” and crushing some conspiracy theories about giant snakes. How big do they get? Do they have any enemies? Can they really eat people? Find out at Final Friday, September 30, 6-9 p.m.

“Anaconda” begins at 7 p.m. and is rated PG-13.

Additionally, Museum staff and NC Herpetological Society members will be on hand (5:30-7 p.m.) to show off several live snakes, including a 7-foot-long boa constrictor, Brazilian rainbow boa, rosy boa and ball python, plus an assortment of smaller but no less hypnotizing constrictors ranging from a black rat snake to a brown water snake. And just prior to the movie, enjoy a short presentation by Bob Flook, the Museum’s Chief of Living Collections (live animals).

A/V Geeks’ Skip Elsheimer returns to provide a fun night of trivia and tongue-in-cheek commentary on not-so-mainstream movies as well as samples from his vault of 24,000 films. Movies will be complemented by experts and hands-on science stations related to each night’s theme. Dinner (such as sliders or tacos), drinks (including NC beer and wine) and popcorn will be available to buy before the show.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m., movies and presentations begin at 7 p.m. Admission: $5/person. For more information, a list of future Final Fridays, or to buy tickets, visit naturalsciences.org/finalfridays.
