The Space Association of Australia is hosting a one-off screening of the Australian movie The Dish, to mark the 45th anniversary of the first Moon landing by Apollo 11 on 20 July, 1969.

This will be the first opportunity in many years to see this treasured Australian film on the big screen and in the ultra-comfort of The Backlot Studios private cinema.

We'll also have a some fascinating space displays, VIP guests and a short presentation titled Australia and the Apollo Program that will celebrate Australia's critical role in the Moon landings.

Just confirmed! Special guest, broadcaster and 'human headline' Derryn Hinch, who was actually at Cape Kennedy to witness the launch, will give a first hand account of his experience and recollections

Rock up in your best 60’s gear and enter our Apollo Fashion Show (during interval) to win valuable prizes and get into the swing!

We will be celebrating man’s first steps on another world (45 years ago to the day) and the critical part Australia played in that historic event.

This will be a fun and informative afternoon for all ages and we encourage you to invite family and friends to share this historic anniversary.

Enjoy a wonderful movie, meet some new people and relive (or learn about) one of the most significant moments in human history!

You will also be helping to raise much needed funds to enable the Space Association to continue our work to promote space and space technology in Australia.
