Join us for Monday Night at the Movies. We'll be meeting most Monday evenings from February 4-April 29 to watch a different film, from old favorites to new releases. Free popcorn! Closed captioning will be provided when available. This series is paid for with funds from the Gert Salzer Gordon grant.
On Monday, February 18 we'll be watching "First Man" (2018, 141 minutes, PG-13). Ryan Gosling stars as Neil Armstrong in this thrilling and intimate account of the early days of the space program leading to the first moon landing. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Damien Chazelle, this recent film is nominated for four Academy Awards.
Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong's perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
