Apollo 11 runs from Monday, April 22 thru Wednesday, April 24. It screens Monday to Wednesday at 7pm with an additional screening on Wednesday at 4pm in Thalian Hall’s Main Theatre.
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 film is like a historical archive crossed with an IMAX simulator, making viewers feel like they're part of the team that put the first man on the moon.
Although we know how the mission turns out, "Apollo 11" generates and maintains suspense. And it rekindles a crazy sense of wonder. Glenn Kenny, The NYTimes
