Moonlight Movie – Apollo 13 & Stargazing

Join Madison Parks for the final Moonlight Movie of the year.

A movie under the stars….about the stars and moon….while gazing at the stars!!

Join Madison Parks for a unique event where we bring two of our most popular events together: Moonlight Movies and Stargazing in Madison Parks.

The Moonlight Movie will be Apollo 13, the 1995 American docudrama starring Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, and directed by Ron Howard. The film historically depicts the Apollo 13 moon landing mission gone wrong and NASA’s courageous struggle to bring the 3 astronauts home safely.

In addition to the screening of Apollo 13, we will also team up with UW Space Place for stargazing! If the skies are clear, there will be telescopes set up to view the stars and moon.
