LOCATION CHANGE! Outdoor Movie: The Day We Walked on the Moon

Saturday, July 20, 2019

This event will be moved inside due to expected extreme heat conditions this weekend. The show must go on!

Bring your blankets and chairs for a movie on the lawn celebrating the 50th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon. As the sun sets, join us for moon-themed activities before watching, "The Day We Landed on the Moon."

In this film astronauts, members of Mission Control, and the children of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin reveal their personal stories behind the scenes of the iconic day. Pop culture notables like Queen guitarist and doctor of astrophysics Brian May, and television personality and professor of physics Brian Cox, describe where they were and what they felt during that "One Small Step." It’s a story that ranges from the deeply personal to the grand and historic, an in-depth look at one of the most important 24-hour periods in history.

Light refreshments will be available for purchase.

Ages: All ages are welcome
