Thursday, June 13, 7:00 pm: The Right Stuff (1983)
Based on the book by Tom Wolfe, this epic Hollywood film explores fifteen years of the U.S. Space program. By focusing on the lives of the Mercury astronauts, including John Glenn and Alan Shepard, the film recounts NASA’s earliest experiments as well as the family lives and the personal crises of those involved. The Right Stuff is still a thrilling and inspiring film about exploration and American grit.
Thursday, July 11, 7:30 pm: Apollo 13 (1995)
Based on true events, this enduring survival film has become a major modern classic. After a technological failure during the Apollo 13 mission to the Moon, NASA must devise a strategy to safely return the astronauts to Earth. A superb cinematic achievement from director Ron Howard, Apollo 13 was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and stars Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, and Kevin Bacon.
Thursday, August 8, 7:30 pm: The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
Considered one of the most influential science fiction films of all time, The Day the Earth Stood Still is a timeless story about first contact. A mysterious humanoid alien lands in Washington, D.C. with a warning to Earth’s people to cease their violent behavior. Panic erupts when a nervous soldier shoots the messenger, and his robot companion responds. A sci-fi hallmark that offers wry commentary on the political climate of the 1950s.
