Chernobyl: In Memoriam

April 5, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Thirty years ago, a catastrophic human-caused disaster echoed around the globe. The Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine melted down. The horror of the fallout and tragedies surrounding the ongoing containment efforts began to unfold on the evening news only two days after the accident. Photographer and filmmaker Philip Grossman of Colorado has dedicated years to documenting the elusive, dangerous, and fascinating Chernobyl Nuclear Exclusion Zone. During seven expeditions over five years, he amassed 20,000 images and 60 hours of film, including very rare photographs inside one of the reactor blocks, ground zero for the accident, in addition to the first drone footage ever shot in the region. Grossman will share his internationally acclaimed images on the IMAX screen and stories from his time at the site, including of his recent nuptials that actually took place in the zone.

Tickets: $12 member, $15 nonmember
