If you have a short film you’d like to show/present, let us know.
Along with a tutorial/seminar on Anamorphic lenses (A must for anyone serious about ‘movie magic)
I recently came across this article:
and the list of lenses possibly containing Thorium:  http://camerapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Radioactive_lenses
Seeing as many here probably are vintage lens collectors 
(Can’t beat the look of imperfect glass!), bring it in!
We’ll have a Geiger Counter that night to detect 
your glass for any ionizing particles.
Anyone ‘concerned’ regarding rads, this chart helps put everything into context: https://xkcd.com/radiation/
