April 23rd: First Man Screening at Roosevelt Island Public Library

On Tuesday, April 23rd at 6:00 p.m., the Roosevelt Island branch of the New York Public Library invites you to a screening of First Man. 

Join us for a free screening of Damien Chazelle's acclaimed First Man, winner of the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling re-team for the riveting story behind the first manned mission to the moon, focusing on Neil 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.

The Roosevelt Island branch of the New York Public Library is located at 524 Main Street.
