When you think of movies, you probably don't think of the National Institutes of Health. But for the 17th year in a row, the agency is holding its weekly summer movie nights. Science in the Cinema runs through August 11th at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring. Bruce Fuchs, Director of NIH's Office of Science Education, tells us how the movies fit with the agency's mission. (The next film being shown as part of the agency's Science in the Cinema is "Extraordinary Measures". That will be held tomorrow night at the AFI Theatre in Silver Spring.)
