Experience the legendary journey to the Moon on Pittsburgh’s largest screen with Dolby Atmos® surround sound! Universal Pictures’ First Man tells the story of astronaut, Neil Armstrong, and the historic space mission that led him to become the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.
On the heels of their six-time Academy Award®-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar®-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam to tell the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Armstrong and the decade leading to the historic Apollo 11 flight. A visceral and intimate account told from Armstrong’s perspective, based on the book by James R. Hansen, the film explores the triumphs and the cost—on Armstrong, his family, his colleagues, and the nation itself—of one of the most dangerous missions in history.
Written by Academy Award® winner Josh Singer (Spotlight, The Post), the epic drama of leading under the pressure of grace and tragedy is produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars), alongside Isaac Klausner (Love, Simon) and Chazelle. Steven Spielberg, Adam Merims, and Singer executive produced this dramatic look at America’s most historic moment in space.
