Elaine Newton's Four O'clock at the Movies Series
Artis—Naples Lifelong Learning


First Man

In the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges of new technology, skepticism from peers, statistical improbability and endless untold dangers, the Lunar Landing Mission team climbed into a rocket and lifted off beyond the world’s dreams. First Man tells the epic story of mission commander Neil Armstrong and the journey that led him taking man’s first steps—and a giant leap—on the moon’s surface on July 20, 1969.

Once the movie for this lecture is announced, the film may have only a brief run in local theaters, so please see it as soon as you can.
