Sneak Preview of Apollo 11 Documentary in DC
Rick Fienberg, AAS Press Officer
NEON and CNN Films, in partnership with Smithsonian Theaters and the National Air and Space Museum, invite AAS members to a special screening of the new film Apollo 11.
The screening is Tuesday, 26 February, at 7:00 pm at the Lockheed Martin IMAX Theater at the National Air and Space Museum (600 Independence Ave. SW, Washington, DC). Tickets are free but are available only while supplies last.
Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65-mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the heart of the NASA mission 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 July 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
