★★★★ - The Guardian
This screening is in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Neil Armstrongs momentous journey on the 20 July 1969.
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award winning smash, La La Land, Oscar winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for First Man, the riveting story of NASA's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.
Based on the book by James R. Hansen, this visceral, first-person account, explores the sacrifices and the cost on Armstrong, his family and on the nation of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Linus Sandgren's isolating cinematograpohy results in a cinematic experience that draws the audience into the narrative and the overwhelming feeling of responsibility and peril.
This event is screened in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.
