The Air Force Museum Theatre is proud to announce the first in a continuing series of Hollywood films, to be shown on the fourth Sunday of every month, at 4 p.m., for $4. When you buy four tickets you get a fifth for free. These films will be aviation, space or seasonally themed.

The Hollywood series begins this month, on March 23, with the 1996 blockbuster Twister, staring Bill Paxton, the late Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman and Helen Hunt. The film follows Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, who must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.

April is the anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission, which makes it a perfect chance to catch Apollo 13, starring Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris. Three astronauts must devise a strategy to return to Earth safely after their spacecraft undergoes massive internal damage. "Houston, we have a problem." Apollo 13 is one of the top space movies of all time and a winner of more than 20 awards including two Oscars. This is a film you will want to see again on Southwest Ohio's largest digital screen.

The Oscar winning film, Gravity (in 3D) will come to our screen in May. Visit the new Space Shuttle Exhibit before watching the wild space adventure. June's feature will be the Superman film, Man of Steel, which features the C-17 aircraft parked right outside of our theatre! Bring the entire family to see the Disney/Pixar film Up in July, followed by 2001: A Space Odyssey in August. Films for September through December will be announced soon.
