This month’s lecture is on the usual day, but it is at a nonstandard time and a nonstandard place, and it isn’t even a lecture. It’s a viewing and discussion!

The community is invited to attend the viewing and discussion of the premier of the second season of Manhattan at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 13 at Time Out Pizzeria in downtown Los Alamos.

The Los Alamos Historical Society continues its popular viewing and discussion of episodes of the television series, Manhattan. Manhattan is a fictionalized drama set in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project of World War II. 

For its second season, Manhattan airs on WGN America at 7 p.m., Tuesdays, Los Alamos time. Manhattan was created and written by Sam Shaw and directed by Thomas Schlamme. After its first season in 2014, Manhattan won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Design.

Discussions from this season’s viewings and discussions are logged at http://losalamoshistory.org/manhattan_discussion_intro.htm. Come with your pizza money and enjoy a viewing of the second season premier and, afterward, a discussion of the show and how it relates to actual history.
