The North Hills Senior High School planetarium will welcome community members for special showings of Michael Frayn’s “Copenhagen” on Jan. 15 – 17 at 6:30 p.m.
The film is an adaptation of Frayn’s award-winning stage play about the meeting of Nobel Prize-winning physicists Niels Bohr and Werner Heisenberg in 1941 Copenhagen. Starring Daniel Craig of James Bond notoriety, the story follows the faltering German nuclear energy research program and both men’s involvement in its endeavors during World War II.
Attendees also can view “Vision of the Universe,” a museum display of 600 years of astronomy detailing Mars landings.
All shows are free and open to the public. Reservations are required. To reserve a seat, call 412-318-1402 and leave a message. The North Hills Senior High planetarium is located on the third floor of the senior high school at 53 Rochester Road in Ross Township.
North Hills remains one of only a few districts across the state to offer a planetarium for educational and community outreach purposes in a public high school. The planetarium is overseen by senior high teacher Sue Batson.
