Last Man on the Moon

  • Salida SteamPlant Event Center Theater 220 West Sackett Avenue Salida, CO, 81201 United States (map)

When Apollo astronaut Eugene Cernan stepped off the moon in 1972 he left his footprints and his daughter’s initials in the lunar dust. Only now, forty years later, is he ready to share his epic but deeply personal story. Cernan’s burning ambition carried him to the spectacular and hazardous environment of space and to the moon. But there was a heavy price to pay for the fame and privilege that followed. As his wife famously remarked, ‘If you think going to the moon is hard, try staying at home.’ This documentary combines rare archive material, compelling visual effects and unprecedented access to present an iconic historical character on the big screen.

Tickets are available at the SteamPlant Box Office. $10 for adults, $5 for students.
