Join War in the Pacific National Historical Park for a special Movie in the Park program on Saturday, August 6. In remembrance of the 66th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, the park will show Day One, an “Emmy award winning drama of the race to build the A-bomb – and save the world.” Day One, starring Brian Dennehy, David Strathairn, Tony Shalhoub, and Hal Holbrook, dramatically portrays the complex and moving story of the top-secret Manhattan Project, which built the world’s first atomic bombs. The Manhattan Project spent billions of dollars and employed over 130,000 people in one of the largest and most secretive government programs in history. Cloaked in absolute secrecy, scientists, technicians, and soldiers faced intense military and political pressure as they raced against time and unforeseen challenges to create the ultimate weapon and change the course of history.

 
The public is invited to join us under the stars at Asan Beach on Saturday, August 6 at 6:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, flashlights, umbrellas, and insect repellant. For more information, call 333-4050 or visit www.nps.gov/wapa.
