Tickets on sale now for First Man at the Rangos Giant Cinema
Just in time for NASA's 60th birthday, the mission is a go at Carnegie Science Center’s Rangos Giant Cinema. Tickets are on sale now for Universal Pictures’ First Man, an immersive drama chronicling astronaut Neil Armstrong’s triumphant flight to the Moon. With Pittsburgh’s largest screen and Dolby Atmos® surround sound, The Rangos will transport moviegoers to America’s most historic moment in space, with the film opening on Friday, Oct. 12. A special 7 pm preview screening is set for Thursday, Oct. 11.
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and actor Ryan Gosling reteam to tell the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Armstrong and the years 1961-1969. A visceral, first-person account, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the movie will explore the sacrifices and the cost—on Armstrong and on the nation—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Hailed by critics as a “turbulently spectacular and enthralling drama,” and “a powerful experience,” First Man is a perfect fit for The Rangos, given Carnegie Science Center’s commitment to science and technology exploration. Entertainment Weekly raves of the film, “You’ve never seen a movie that captures space flight with this degree of authenticity. It’s literally out of this world.”
With the United States’ foremost agency of space research celebrating its diamond anniversary, First Man’s release comes at a stellar time. Purchase your tickets to see one of humankind’s most enormous feats on a Certified Giant Screen by visiting CarnegieScienceCenter.org.
