These ARE the Droids 

The St. Louis Science Center's (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org) First Friday theme this month is "These ARE the Droids You're Looking For," and as you may have guessed, it's all about robots. The evening kicks off with producer Jini Durr introducing her new IMAX film Robots, which confirms that the forefathers of C-3PO and R2-D2 already walk among us. Narrated by Star Trek's Simon Pegg, the film shows audiences state-of-the-art robot handymen, mechanical butlers, search-and-rescue bots and uncanny, human-looking androids. Other activities include a robot dance presentation, a "People's History of Star Wars" discussion, a demonstration on how to create your own Star Wars scene using stop-motion animation and a screening of Mel Brooks' sci-fi comedy Spaceballs in the Omnimax theater. First Fridays start at 6 p.m.; admission is free, but individual activities may require a small fee.
