Hot Summer Saturday Movie Matinée: Apollo 13

Saturday, July 6, 2019

2:30 PM - 4:45 PM

Stay cool this summer and join us for our Saturday matinée series, inspired by the summer reading program theme of "A Universe of Stories".

This 1995 film tells the story of the 1970 lunar mission, which suffered an explosion in space that disabled the ship, leaving the astronauts and Mission Control to work frenetically on devising a plan to get the men home safely. Based on actual events, this film features Bill Paxton, Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise, and Ed Harris.

This film is rated PG.

Free & open to the public.

Thanks to the Friends of the Jones Libraries for making this film series possible.
