The Black Hole is a 2006 American television movie produced for the Sci Fi channel, directed by Tibor Takács.


Something goes awry at a particle accelerator facility in St. Louis and a black hole begins to form. A creature exits the hole and seeks out energy. As the creature absorbs energy, the black hole grows in size and destroys a large part of St. Louis. Before the creature can be hit with a nuclear bomb, it is lured back to the black hole and the black hole collapses on itself.

Landmark destruction[edit]

The film is noteworthy for using many distinctive pieces of St. Louis architecture as locations in the story. The Saint Louis Science Center planetarium stands in as the headquarters for the research project, and the Gateway Arch is destroyed in one scene as is Busch Memorial Stadium and the city hall.


The film stars Judd Nelson as the main character, Eric Bryce, a nuclear physicist essential in solving this problem, with Kristy Swanson playing Dr. Shannon Mueller as the secondary leading character.
