Description

As part of the Canberra and Region Heritage Festival, and to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Shine Dome and the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing, we will be holding a special screening of Hidden Figures.

Oscar-nominated film, Hidden Figures, tells the incredible story of three brilliant and inspiring African-American women working at NASA who served as the brains behind the launch into orbit of astronaut John Glenn.

The screening will be opened by Australia's Astronomer-at-Large, Professor Fred Watson.

Also before the main feature, we will screen The 50th, a documentary by local filmmaker, Scott Holgate, that highlights the role two Canberrans (John Saxon and Mike Dunn) played in the Moon Landing in 1969.


Doors open at 2.10pm. Movie begins at 2.30pm.

BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL! Tickets at the door cannot be guaranteed.

Please note: No food or drink allowed into the theatre. The movie is rated PG and may not be suitable for children.
