Bishop Planetarium


On July 16, 1969, hundreds of thousands of spectators and an army of reporters gathered at Cape Kennedy to witness one of the great spectacles of the century: the launch of Apollo 11. Witness this incredible day presented through stunning, remastered footage and interviews that take you behind-the-scenes and inside the spacecraft, Mission Control and the homes of the astronauts’ families.

This 50-minute, PG-rated movie will be shown in the all-digital Planetarium.

Included in the cost of daily admission. No tickets required.
