Magnificent Desolation in Tarentum

No, that is not a description of Tarentum.

"Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D" is the name of an IMAX (R) film to be released on September 23 in a record number of theaters worldwide according to a company press release. Locally the film will open in Tarentum at the Cinemark at the Galleria at Pittsburgh Mills. (Among the other 84 theaters worldwide where the film will open is the Rangos Omnimax Theater at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh.)

Tom Hanks narrates the film, which also includes the voices of Morgan Freeman, John Travolta, Paul Newman, Matt Damon, and Matthew McConaughey. The images are a combination of NASA footage, CGI rendition and live action.

The Playtone/IMAX production was sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
