Vancouverites Invited to ‘Space Out’ All July

As of July 20/21, it’ll been an entire half-century since Apollo 11 made history by landing on the moon. We’ve learned and speculated a lot about the universe since then; and, 50 years later, the great unknown continues to provide the film industry with big picture fossil fuel. In honour of both real and imagined Outer Space, The Cinematheque is giving its own tribute with a full month of space-themed programming, from July 3 – 28th.

‘A Spaced-Out July’ includes three creepy, campy and premonitory classic sci-fi features – Ikarie XB 1, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris – and two 2019 motion picture future-classics – the Claire Denis film High Life (I haven’t been so genuinely affected and disturbed by a film since Lars Von Trier’s Meloncholia) and the PG-rated biopic First Man.

There will also be two documentary screenings to mark the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11: the Oscar-nominated 1989 film For All Mankind (Brian Eno had a hand in the soundtrack, so you know it’s legit) and the new immersive film experience Apollo 11, which consists of entirely unseen and unheard 70mm footage and Mission Control audio dug out from the NASA archives.

For screen times, more details and advance tickets head over here. Let’s space the f*** out!
