I am trapped in my apartment during this polar vortex as some of you probably are. For something to do let's try to compile a list of movies that feature telescopes. I'll start off the list with a few. CONTACT Starring Jodie Foster 1997 If I remember correctly in it a desert array of radio telescopes are shown as well as Arecibo. SKYLINE 2010 Has several scenes of them using a very nice telescope but not for astronomy. I like how they had it rigged up to the TV.
