|“Space Stations” Movie Night!|
Saturday, November 19th
3:00 p.m to ?
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 19th from 3:00 p.m. until we’re all drowning in Tribbles! This year’s get-together will feature a “Space Station” theme…what goes right, and what might someday go badly wrong!
We’ll have a few minutes for snacks and conversation after doors open at 3:00 p.m., but by about 3:30 we’ll be ready to start with our Science Fact entry, the 2002 IMAX Space Station movie, filmed by the astronauts themselves and presented on Anita’s big-screen TV in Blu-Ray! You’ll love the scenes of weightlessness and the ever-changing view as the early modules of the International Space Station are jockeyed into place!
We’ll have a dinner break with hot dogs and fixings, chips, and maybe a few homemade chocolate chip cookies, and then we’ll get into Tribbles for the rest of the evening! We’ll start, of course, with the original Star Trek second season episode “The Trouble With Tribbles” as written by David Gerrold. That will be followed by the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine follow-on tribute episode, “Trials and Tribble-ations”…if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s good! Finally, as a nightcap, we’ll have the animated series episode “More Tribbles, More Troubles” on tap for the die-hards!
The popcorn machine will be there and popping; Anita will have her legendary spread of adult and soft beverages; and you’re all invited to bring along your leftover Halloween candy! Other contributions, both food and funds, are welcome as well. We’re expecting an intimate turnout for this event, but still we would appreciate an RSVP email to firstname.lastname@example.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. These shows are all child-friendly!
Finally, we’re also giving advance notice of our Chapter Christmas party, currently scheduled for the evening of Saturday, December 17th. Hope to see you there!
