WATERVILLE — The Maine Film Center will present “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” at 7:15 p.m. Tuesday, March 28, at Railroad Square Cinema, 17 Railroad Square. The showing is part of the National Evening of Science on Screen, with guest speaker Dr. Erika Nyhus of Bowdoin College.

In the film, a couple undergoes a procedure to have each other erased from their memories when their relationship turns sour. But it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with. From acclaimed writer Charlie Kaufman and visionary director Michel Gondry, this comical and poignant look at breakups, breakdowns and breakthroughs won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.
