Fire up the movie projector and break out the screen as the National Museum of the American Sailor Film Club screens another fantastic movie. This time we’ll watch the Academy Award winning film Apollo 13.

Following the real-life events of the troubled Apollo 13 lunar mission, this film (starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, and Gary Sinise) highlights the intensity of space exploration and the determination of the men who risked their lives to reach the moon.

The film will be followed by a round-table discussion of the role the Navy plays in our quest to the stars. Popcorn will be served throughout the film and there is no cost to attend this event.
