HoMA has had a film program since the 1930s, when it showed classic films in Central Courtyard. The theatre opened in 1977, named in honor of Doris Duke, a generous philanthropist and supporter of Islamic art and culture, jazz and other music and performing arts. The Doris Duke Foundation provided funds for the modernization and re-dedication of the theater in 2000.

Science on Screen: Picture A Scientist
Picture a Scientist chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries—including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists—who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.Science on Screen: Picture a Scientist
