Cinema Capitol (230 W. Dominick St.) will begin the biographical drama “First Man” from Friday, Nov. 2-Thursday, Nov. 8.
Directed by Damien Chazelle and written by Josh Singer, “First Man” is based on the book of the same title by James R. Hansen. Taking place between the years 1961-1969, the movie tells the story of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission to land the first man on the moon.
Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) is of particular focus, and the movie explores the personal sacrifices Armstrong and his family made to participate in the dangerous mission. The movie also stars Claire Foy, Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Ciarán Hinds, Christopher Abbott, Patrick Fugit, and Lukas Haas.
Chazelle was awarded “Director of the Year” at the 2018 Hollywood Film Awards for “First Man” and the movie was nominated for “Best Film” at the Venice Film Festival.
“First Man” runs 141 minutes and is rated PG-13 (for some thematic content involving peril, and brief strong language).
Admission is $7, $6 for students and military, and $5 for Capitol Friends. Tickets are available at the door and in advance from the Capitol Theatre box office (315-337-6453) and online at www.romecapitol.com.
