With gripping themes and a stellar cast, The China Syndrome is the rare thriller that's as thought-provoking as it is tense. Don't miss the opportunity to see this classic thriller on the big screen.
A news reporter (Jane Fonda) and her cameraman (Michael Douglas) are unintentional witnesses to a SCRAM incident, an emergency core shutdown procedure at a nuclear power plant in California. The crew prevents a catastrophe, but the plant supervisor (Jack Lemmon) begins to suspect the plant is in violation of safety standards, and tries desperately to bring it to the attention of the public, fearing that another SCRAM incident will produce an atomic disaster.
Screened in association with the exhibition ‘Len Lye: Atomic Power’
1979 | Thriller | 117 min | Dir. James Bridges
