Created from previously unseen 70mm film footage and over 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 (U) launches audiences to the heart of the mission that first put men on the Moon and established Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin as American icons.

 

Directed, produced and edited by Todd Douglas Miller, Apollo 11 (U) is comprised solely of archived footage including scenes from Launch Complex 39, spectators who flocked to watch the launch, the recovery of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins and post-mission efforts aboard the USS Hornet.

2019 marks 50 years since Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong first set foot on the Moon, an historical event that was broadcast live to audiences all across the globe. The momentous achievement put an end to the ‘Space Race’ and was, in the words of Armstrong himself, “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

 

Apollo 11 (U) will be screening at The Courtyard from Saturday 13 – Thursday 25 July. For more information and to book tickets call Box Office on 01432 340555 or book online.
