The Matrix movie poster

2018 OMSI Sci Fi Film Fest Selection

A theatrical blockbuster at the time of its release in 1999, The Matrix proved to be a mind-blowing advancement in cinematic visual effects garnering the four technical Oscars for which it was nominated, including Best Visual Effects and Best Editing. Set in the 22nd century, the film tells the story of a young computer hacker nicknamed Neo (Keanu Reeves)searching to determine the deepest reality of a post-Apocalyptic world. Neo joins a group of underground insurgents led by Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne)and soon uncovers the web of deceit and massive illusions that obscure the truth: Earth is now ruled by a vast and powerful network of computers.


"A wildly cinematic futuristic thriller that is determined to overpower the imagination, The Matrix combines traditional science-fiction premises with spanking new visual technology in a way that almost defies description." Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
