Part of Spirit of '69. Showtimes will be posted on Mon, Jul 15.
From director Todd Douglas Miller comes a cinematic event 50 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 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.
“Fifty years ago this July, the first men landed on the moon, the culmination of the Apollo 11 mission. ‘Iconic’ is an overused word, but the images recorded during that mission deserve it.” —Alissa Wilkinson, Vox “Although we know how the mission turns out, the movie generates and maintains suspense. And it rekindles a crazy sense of wonder at, among other things, what one can do practically with trigonometry.” —Glenn Kenny, New York Times “This doesn’t just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you’ve been transported right into the middle of history.” —David Fear, Rolling Stone
