Join us for "Switch" -- a free movie, popcorn and LED bulb

Explore the future of energy
Take a fascinating trip around the world exploring the future of energy through "Switch," a 90-minute film showing Tuesday, Jan. 16, 7 p.m. at the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center, 127 S. Mission St.

Switch-logoEvery energy resource — fossil, nuclear and renewable — is undergoing profound changes. Rather than advocate for how it should happen, "Switch" travels the world to discover how it most likely will happen.

The documentary has earned praise for its even-handed approach; the Washington Post called it "refreshingly free of hot air." Scott Tinker, a geologist and energy researcher at the University of Texas in Austin, is an affable guide and narrator, leading viewers to explore sources of hydro, coal, nuclear, solar, wind and fossil energy -- and imagine what lies ahead.

Pick up your free LED
Chelan County PUD customers can pick up a free LED bulb at the show. The movie is free, too, although a donation of $5 for the museum is suggested.

"Switch" is part of the museum's Environmental Film and Lecture Series.
