First Friday: I Am Sherlocked

When: Fri., Feb. 3, 6 p.m. 2017

Sherlock Holmes is a giant in the world of fiction. He has traversed all media, from the popular Sir Arthur Conan Doyle books to the Benedict Cumberbatch television series. Fiction's greatest detective now becomes the subject of an investigation when the St. Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; www.slsc.org) hosts its latest First Friday, I Am Sherlocked. Experts from around the community will break down the forensic science of intricate detective work, and participants will try to solve a mystery, just like Holmes. Screenings include episodes of Cumberbatch's Sherlock and the 1987 TV film The Sign of Four, starring Jeremy Brett and Edward Harwicke as Holmes and Watson. For fans of the popular detective, this First Friday is a Sherlock-lover's dream. First Friday starts at 6 p.m., and most activities are free (some require a small fee).
