Ah, the harbingers of spring in Durham. Daffodils and crocuses nose out of the lawn, only to be slammed by a week of wintry mix. In the bright evenings after the clocks are set forward, the bars fill up with jogging strollers and mellow dogs. And filmgoers gird themselves for the flickering rush of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, which takes over downtown to screen around 100 films and host all manner of ancillary events from April 9-12.
The Carolina Theatre of Durham is hosting a free screening of the Stephen Hawking film The Theory of Everything.
Stephen Hawking has led a remarkable life. Perhaps the smartest living man in the world, the English scientist has spent his entire life doing ground-breaking work in astrophysics, despite being diagnosed at motor neurone disease at age 21. From books like the best-selling A Brief History of Time and The Universe in a Nutshell to his modern-day appearances on pop culture shows and at thought-leading seminars, Hawking has become as esteemed a scientist as there is in the world.
