Movie Night in the Lohman Planetarium: Oppenheimer

1/20/2024 at 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM

Event Description

Join us in the Lohman Planetarium as we mark the closing of World War II: Stories from the American Experience. Cillian Murphy stars as J. Robert Oppenheimer, an American theoretical physicist known as the “father of the atomic bomb” for his role in the Manhattan Project – the World War II program that developed the first nuclear weapons. Supported by an all-star cast, Christopher Nolan’s ambitious Oppenheimer contains a combination of practical and computer-generated effects to reproduce the nuclear blasts.

This film will be displayed in 16:9 aspect ratio on the Planetarium dome in stunning 4K Ultra high definition. Popcorn and snacks will be available at the concession stand. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the event start time. Rated R; viewer discretion is advised. Advanced purchase of tickets is recommended.
