Visit ‘Jerusalem’ in Omnimax Theater screening at Science Center

A special Jewish community screening of the new film “Jerusalem” will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1 at the St. Louis Science Center’s Omnimax Theater. The screening will feature an introduction and post-film Q&A with the film’s director, Daniel Ferguson.

The film seeks to increase public understanding and appreciation for the city’s historical, spiritual, cultural and artistic uniqueness, as well as highlight some of the intersections between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Through the IMAX film format, enhanced by special access to the holy sites and little-known parts of the city, audiences whether knowledgeable or simply curious about Jerusalem should be able to discover something new and exciting about the city.

The Jewish Community Center’s St. Louis Jewish Film Festival worked closely with the Science Center to create a special, private screening of the film for the Jewish Community in the year of Israel’s 65th birthday. Tickets are $8 for students and $10 for adults. Parking is free. The screening will be followed by birthday cake for Israel. To order tickets in advance, go to or call 314-442-3179.

The program is funded in part by the Lubin- Green Foundation, a supporting Foundation of the St. Louis Jewish Federation.
