APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition Now Playing at Challenger Learning Center @ Challenger Learning Center
Aug 22 – Oct 12 all-day

Experience the “out-of-this-world” moment (literally) when the United States of America achieved exploration greatness with APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition. Boasting “how far and how fast we have come,” as a nation, during a time where traveling to the moon was unthinkable, the brilliantly curated film pilots the audience through the lunar landing journey of avid preparation, anxious lift off and triumphant return. APOLLO 11 was made specifically for a giant screen at museums and science centers, offering an exclusive take into “the greatest and most complex exploration in Man’s history.”
Featuring a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70 mm footage and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, the film offers a distinctive feature from the documentary genre, without narration. Here, the alluring nature of IMAX and unclassified audio recordings speak for themselves, even in its moments of restless silence. APOLLO 11 showcases the raw reality of humanity’s greatest achievements as the first to put men on the moon.
The 47 minute IMAX experience, APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition, excites family and friends of all ages to experience an American triumph at an affordable price. Offering tickets between $6-8, purchases support the Challenger Learning Center’s community outreach and educational programming. APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition is sponsored locally in part through the Council on Culture and Arts’ Cultural Grant Program, funded by the City of Tallahassee and Leon County.

Pagan Pride Day is a FREE event centering the community and education of Pagan and earth-based spiritual paths. The event is open to the public and family-friendly.

The event is an all-day affair, with workshops in the afternoon, followed by a public Mabon ritual and entertainment in the evening. We will also have pagan artisans and organizations in our vendor room.

The public ritual to follow will bring us together in sacred space to raise energy in celebration and support of the Tallahassee Pagan community.

Entertainment in the evening will feature Mama Gina. With down-to-earth, bluesy vocals, a bit of humor, and straight-ahead, rhythmic, acoustic guitar, she tells the true stories that fall into her head and heart.

Children’s activities and vendor booths featuring local artisans, organization, and divination including tarot card reading will be available throughout the day.
