Jodie Foster is working at the Arecibo Observatory at the beginning of the movie Contact before they lose their funding and she ends up at the Very Large Array in New Mexico.

Located in Puerto Rico, Arecibo has been operating since 1963. The radio telescope is the largest single-aperture telescope ever constructed, and the main collecting dish contains the largest curved focusing dish on Earth.
