Film Screening: “The Day We Walked on the Moon”

July 20, 2019 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm |

Half a century after humanity’s historic first step on the Moon, the CHS is hosting a screening of Smithsonian Channel’s The Day We Walked on the Moon. In the film, astronauts, members of Mission Control, and the children of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin reveal their personal stories behind the scenes of the iconic day. Pop culture notables like Queen guitarist and doctor of astrophysics Brian May and television personality and professor of physics Brian Cox describe where they were and what they felt during that “One Small Step.” It’s a story that ranges from the deeply personal to the grand and historic, an in-depth look at one of the most important 24-hour periods in history.

The screening starts at 3:30 in our Auditorium. Chairs, popcorn and soft drinks will be provided, but feel free to bring your own seating too! Families welcome!

Free with Admission. Questions? Contact Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager, at natalie_belanger@chs.org or call 860-236-5621 ext. 289. Tell us you’re coming by emailing rsvp@chs.org.
