TED Talks 2017: The Opening Event

May 30 at 7pm
Waterville Opera House, 1 Common Street

Running Time: Approximately 120 minutes

This is an HD broadcast, pre-recorded during the TED2017 conference in Vancouver, BC. 
TED2017 “The Future You”, will explore the deepest scientific and psychological insights, the latest medical advances, and thrilling new inventions (all mixed with a dose of ancient wisdom), and will ask questions about our present and future selves that we often don’t have time for. The program will feature a succession of extraordinary speakers – risk-takers, visionaries, celebrities, and an emerging generation of idea creators – who will deliver the “talk of their lives” in TED’s world famous TED Talk format.
First Event: “The Opening Event” of TED2017 presents cinema audiences a one-of-a-kind opportunity to watch live with their communities as new TED Talks are presented for the first time in front of 1,500 TED attendees – who represent the world’s leading thinkers and doers in Vancouver, Canada. For the second consecutive year, cinema audiences will get this exclusive look inside the opening night of TED and experience approximately six to seven revelatory talks and performances as they unfold on the TED stage.

Tickets: $15 for single TED2017 event, $40 for all three TED2017 events (contact Box Office).
