“Apollo 11” IMAX Movie with Moon Viewing

Thrill to re-living the first moon landing and then to getting a close look at July’s full moon in a special evening event at The Maritime Aquarium!

On Tues., July 16 – the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11 – we are offering a special evening screening of “Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” at 8 p.m. This critically acclaimed film uses never-before-seen 70mm footage to reconstruct the dramatic and historic Apollo 11 mission in seat-gripping detail.

Following the 47-minute film, weather permitting, audience members are invited out to the Aquarium’s riverfront courtyard for a moon viewing led by the astronomy team of New Pond Farm in Redding. Peer through telescopes as July’s full moon rises in the eastern sky. Look for the Sea of Tranquility, where Apollo 11 touched down four days after its launch.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $12.50 for seniors (65+), and $10 for children (3-12).
