APOLLO 11: First Steps Edition is a thrilling cinematic experience that showcases the real-life moments of humankind’s first steps on the moon. In this special edition of Todd Douglas Miller’s critically acclaimed Apollo 11 documentary, created exclusively for IMAX® and giant screen theaters in science centers and museums, the filmmakers reconstruct the exhilarating final moments of preparation, liftoff, landing and return of this historic mission—one of humanity’s greatest achievements and the first to put men on the moon.
