On every final Friday, from January through August, the newly restored Electric Theater at 68 E. Tabernacle in downtown St. George invites residents and visitors to “come celebrate documentary filmmaking at its finest.” Come and check out DocUtah at the Electric Theater. All screenings, beginning at 7 p.m., feature some of the best of hundreds of entries in the most recent DocUtah, a Southern Utah International Film Festival presented by Dixie State University.
The last two films for DocUtah@theElecric are “The Day After Trinity: J. Robert Oppenheimer and the Atomic Bomb” playing on Friday, June 24 and hosted by Director Jon Else. This feature-length movie tells of “the reflections of scientists and witnesses involved in the creation and testing of the first atomic bomb known as the Manhattan project and its fascinating leader, J. Robert Oppenheimer.”
On Friday, July 29, the Oscar-winning film “The Great American Cowboy,” directed by Kieth Merrill will tell the exciting true story of this vanishing American and his special kind of freedom.
Tickets, for these inspiring films, are available at the door or with a phone call to 435-652-7574.
And, for your vacation planning, the 7th Annual DocUtah Film Festival will be held September 6-10, 2016 on the campus of Dixie State University.
