Pushing the frontiers of community cinema, Screen25 has announced a new season of lunar-themed events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.
By RADIANT CIRCUS
Our friends at Screen25 are preparing for LIFT OFF! 🚀, a new season of lunar-themed cinema events commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.
Three events have been announced, starting the countdown with Duncan Jones’ superb head scratcher, MOON (10 JUL). Then, on the eve of the first moonwalk itself (20 JUL 1969), Damien Chazelle’s FIRST MAN (19 JUN) will be introduced by Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Peter Bull MBE.
If you fancy testing your own space survival skills, Todd Douglas Miller’s doc APOLLO 11 (14 AUG) comes packed with special features from space expert Jerry Stone. A Space Survival Kit Workshop before the film invites you and your crew to think off your feet, solving complex challenges in zero gravity. You’re then invited to stick around after the film to build and (hopefully…) launch your own chemically-powered rocket.
All RADIANT CIRCUS subscribers, friends and followers get a stellar discount when booking for this exciting season. Enter voucher code “CIRCUS19” when booking online and choose ticket option “Promotion (£2 off)” to support community cinema at its finest.
