Atomic Bomb Movie To Show At IMAX Theater

Free to the public, limited seating!


The Clyde W. Tombaugh IMAX Dome Theater will offer one FREE showing of “Trinity and Beyond, The Atomic Bomb Movie” Saturday, October 6, at 3:00 pm. Seating is limited and is on a first come, first served basis. Patrons who wish to see this two hour film will be given free tickets beginning at noon at the IMAX Theater. Seating is limited to the first 87 attendees. Theater Director Dave Dooling said, “We recommend that you arrive at the theater at noon to get your free ticket. This showing of Trinity and Beyond, is an excellent follow up for the Trinity Site Tour earlier in the day, although not directly affiliated with the tour.”

Renowned special effects filmmaker Peter Kuran (Star Wars, Star Trek II & V, Robocop, Addams Family) dedicated over three years to the production of this amazing film, which chronicles the top secret, strange and visually compelling history of the design, production and testing of atomic and hydrogen bombs by the United States. This award winning film is narrated by William Shatner and features rare top-secret footage declassified for the film, along with an original score performed by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra.

DVD and VHS copies of the movie are available for sale in the Museum’s Gift Shops. Limited seating is available for the Saturday evening show. For more information, contact the NM Museum of Space History at 575-437-2840 or toll free at 1-877-333-6589.
