Description

This thrilling giant-screen experience re-lives the wonder and drama of the first lunar landing, as it happened 50 years ago this July.

“Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” captures the human achievement of this historic endeavor. With never-before-seen 70mm footage and a trove of newly discovered audio recordings, the filmmakers reconstruct the Apollo 11 mission in astonishing detail: the final preparation, countdown, liftoff, landing and return of one of mankind’s greatest achievements – all on The Maritime Aquarium’s six-story screen, the largest in Connecticut.

Immersing you among the astronauts, the team in Mission Control and millions of spectators on the ground, “Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” documents those momentous days and hours in 1969 when we took a giant leap into the future, leaving us all to marvel at human ingenuity and the impulse that led us into space.

“Apollo 11: First Steps Edition” is produced by Statement Pictures in partnership with CNN Films, and distributed by MacGillivray Freeman Films.

Show times from May 18 to June 30 are 1 & 3 p.m. on Saturdays & Sundays, and 2 & 4 p.m. on weekdays. From July 1 to Labor Day (Sept. 2), show times will be 1 & 4 p.m. daily.
