Todd Douglas Miller
Part of the 8 Days in Space Season
From director Todd Douglas Miller (Dinosaur 13) comes a documentary that's been 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 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...
The screening on Sat 20 July will begin at the irregular time of 7.06pm, which will synchronise the moment in the film at which the Apollo Lunar Module landed on the moon with the 50th anniversary of the exact moment that it occurred.
