To celebrate the 50th-anniversary of humankind’s greatest adventure, the Memo will be screening First Man. Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for the riveting story of the astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the legendary space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969. A visceral, intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective and 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 for one of the most dangerous missions in history.
