Hot Summer Saturday Movie Matinée: First Man

Saturday, July 20, 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 2018 film is 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. This film features Ryan Gosling, Jason Clarke, Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, and Corey Stoll.

This film is rated PG-13.

Free & open to the public.

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