Our next film in the “Look Up” series, dedicated to Gail Cariddi, is the thrilling, nail-biter “Apollo 13″ with Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Kevin Bacon and Ed Harris re-enacting the nearly disastrous moon mission of 1970. On a third lunar mission, a fire in the service module strands three astronauts 248,000 miles from home port. Showing is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 1 due to the long running time of 2 hours 20 minutes. Although rated PG, the film is quite long and perhaps scary for small children. Great history lesson for middle and high school students
Popcorn will be served.
