A Visit to Thomas Hunt Morgan's House in Kentucky for two special screenings

In honor of the end of the festival tour of The Fly Room and the release of the film in theaters, we head to Lexington, Kentucky mid-September to Thomas Hunt Morgan's hometown. 

We celebrate Morgan's early discoveries in The Fly Room 100 years ago with two special screenings. On Sept 26, we will head first to Hunt-Morgan House. Morgan brought international fame to the family and the Bluegrass by becoming the first Kentuckian to win a Nobel Prize. Morgan graduated in 1886 from the State College of Kentucky, later the University of Kentucky, and received his doctorate from Johns Hopkins University. He co-authored The Mechanics of Mendelian Heredity, which established the fruit fly as the model agent for the study of genetics. He received the Nobel Prize in Physiology in 1933.
