Apollo 13 (1995)
Wed, July 10 @ 7:00 pm
Astronaut Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) and his team Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) depart on what was to be NASA’s third lunar landing in 1970. Halfway through the mission, an explosion threatens the crew’s oxygen and power supplies. Signaling the emergency with what became an iconic phrase “Houston, we have a problem,” the astronauts bravely face either suffocating or freezing to death, as Mission Control leader Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) struggles to find a way to bring them home safely. Directed by Ron Howard, the historical drama was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and subsequently rereleased in IMAX format in 2002.

One of Pixar’s most charming tales, WALL-E poses the question – what if mankind had to leave Earth but someone forgot to turn the last robot off?

But when EVE discovers WALL-E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, she is sent back into space to report to the humans. WALL-E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most imaginative adventures ever brought to the big screen.
