50th Anniversary of the Apollo moon landings
July 2019 is the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. To celebrate this event we will be showing the movie ‘First Man’ , a dramatization of the events leading up to the first manned moon landing and focussing on Neil Armstrong. On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures’ First Man, the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
This is a free event. The movie runs for 2h 22 mins so we are starting at the earlier time of 5:30pm. We will provide free snacks during the intermission – finishing time about 8:30 pm.
