Double Feature Movie Night!

Saturday, November 11th 4:00-10:30 p.m
Anita Gale Residence
18506 Upper Bay Road
Nassau Bay, Texas


Anita Gale is hosting our Chapter’s November “Movie Night” in her home at 18506 Upper Bay Road in Nassau Bay, across NASA 1 and down the road just a few blocks from the Space Center on Saturday, November the 11th from 4:00 through 10:30 p.m. This year’s get-together will be a Double Feature of two space classics from the best of Hollywood!

We’ll begin at 4:00 p.m. with a viewing of the 1950 George Pal classic, Destination Moon. There we’ll see Hollywood’s first serious attempt to envision an actual journey to the Moon. After that film we’ll have a bit of a dinner break with sandwich fixings and chips, then we’ll return to Anita’s TV room to see how we really did go to the Moon with Ron Howard’s masterpiece, Apollo 13.

We’ll have the popcorn machine going throughout; Anita will have her legendary spread of adult and soft beverages; and you’re all invited to bring along your leftover Halloween candy!

We would appreciate an RSVP email to info@nss-houston-moon.org so that we know how many to plan for. No charge for the event, but voluntary contributions towards the refreshments will be accepted with our thanks. Children are welcome with appropriate adult supervision.
