Event description

Description

  • Doors will open at 5:30 pm for reception.
  • Screening begins at 6pm.

This summer we are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. To help celebrate, American Experience will be running a three-part episode, called “Chasing the Moon”. The three-part, six-hour series on RMPBS recasts the Space Age as a fascinating stew of scientific innovation, political calculation, media spectacle, visionary impulses and personal drama.

In Grand Junction, we will have our own version of celebrating this amazing achievement, with American Experience: Chasing the Moon Week from June 14 to June 21, sponsored by Chevron. Rocky Mountain PBS will be collaborating with local businesses and organizations to help make this week truly out of this world!

View the full Chasing the Moon Week schedule at rmpbs.org/chasingthemoon.

During this special week, Rocky Mountain PBS will be hosting a screening at the Avalon Theatre, for the 40-minute preview of Chasing the Moon.

Please join Colorado National Monument Association, Grand Mesa Observatory, Western Colorado Astronomy Club, Mesa County Library, Eureka! Science Museum, and Rocky Mountain PBS for an out of this space experience during our American Experience: Chasing the Moon Week.
