On the heels of the wildly successful Sky Atlantic/HBO dramatic series Chernobyl comes the powerful companion documentary The Real Chernobyl. The film introduces viewers to the real-life figures portrayed in the narrative series and offers their haunting first-person accounts.

On April 26, 1986, an explosion rocked reactor #4 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine. Mass amounts of damaging radioactive were released and swept across the region, leading to mass evacuations, a string of agonizing deaths, and incalculable health-related issues for well over 100,000 citizens.

Established in 2015, Movie Mondays is a collaborative partnership between the Department of Student Activities, the Waco Hippodrome, and various campus partners.  Admission is free, but tickets for entrance are required (unless noted otherwise) and can be picked up at the Waco Hippodrome Box Office or Baylor Ticket Office.
