Timed to coincide with 50th anniversary of NASA’s celebrated Apollo 11 mission, “Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” will showcase the real-life moments of humankind’s first steps on the moon.
In this special giant-screen edition of Todd Douglas Miller’s critically acclaimed “Apollo 11” documentary created exclusively for science centers and museum theaters, the filmmakers reconstruct the exhilarating final moments of preparation, liftoff, landing and return of this historic mission, the first to put men on the moon.
With a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70mm footage and audio recordings, “Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” joins Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins; the mission control team and millions of spectators around the world during those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
The film opens July 15 on the California Science Center’s seven-story IMAX screen. Admission to the Endeavour is included with an IMAX ticket.
