Poster shows NeXT Computer launch to be depicted in Steve Jobs biopic

The photo, taken by Instagram user "seannung" was apparently taken at the San Francisco Opera House earlier this week. It shows that the film, directed by Danny Boyle from a script by Aaron Sorkin, will feature a sequence depicting the launch of Jobs' PC computing business in 1988.

According to MacRumors:

Back in 1988, the unveiling of the NeXT Computer took place at the Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, which is located across the street from the Opera House. It is not clear why filming is taking place at the Opera Hall, but scenes will also be filmed at the Symphony Hall, according to reports. Filming in the area will continue until April.

The Steve Jobs biopic, which also stars Seth Rogen as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, will be released by Universal Pictures to theaters on October 9.
