“Movie Night at the Planetarium” featuring APOLLO 13, a 1995 motion picture based on the true story of the 13th Apollo mission in 1970. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14 to the Moon, but were moved up to Apollo 13. There was little public interest in this “routine” flight until things started to go very wrong, and the chance of a safe return began to seem remote.
Starring Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Gary Sinise and other familiar faces.
Rated PG for language and emotional intensity
Running time: 140 minutes
Immediately following Apollo 13, stay for “Lunacy: Moon Facts or Fallacies” as we debunk popular lunar myths and fallacies.
Doors open: 6 p.m. Show begins: 6:30 p.m.
Our capacity is 58 seats. We set aside 20 seats to accommodate those who arrive without a reservation, so if the show is sold out you can still try to attend by arriving close to 6 p.m. However, although we will do whatever we can to seat all comers, there is no guarantee of admission without a reservation.
