The world watched on July 20, 1969 as Neil Armstrong made history as the first man to walk on the moon. On July 12, join us to relive Apollo 11's breathtaking mission from behind the scenes with new, never-before-seen footage.
From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
This exclusive screening will begin at 6:00pm and shown in large format in the Alan L. Bean Planetarium at the Talcott Mountain Science Center. General admission seating. Space is limited. RSVP early to reserve your space.
