One Giant Leap Movie Screening – First man

Johnston Building, Shambles Yard

Mankind’s first foray into the cosmos will be celebrated in Northern Ireland this year by the iconic Armagh Observatory and Planetarium who are running a special festival event programme to mark this major event in human history.

Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council have partnered with the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium to bring you a special space cinema event at the Johnston Building, Shambles Yard Armagh.

To celebrate Neil Armstrong’s One Giant Leap, we will be showing the award winning 2018 movie ‘First Man’.

Ryan Gosling stars in the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong's perspective, 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—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
