Rockets' Red Glare: Space Race Classics

Nicholson Memorial Library System - Central Library

Adults can attend a space-related film discussion led by a professional film critic at 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 22 at the Central Library. The event, Rockets’ Red Glare: Space Race Classics, is part of the Adult Summer Reading Program and was inspired by the reading program’s theme, A Universe of Stories.

Critic Larry Ratliff will use presentation software and movie clips to revisit space-themed films, such as The Right Stuff, October Sky, and Apollo 13. Mr. Ratliff has more than 30 years of experience as a film critic and served as a movie feature writer for the San Antonio Express-News from 1996 to 2009. His previous presentations have included a critique of Casablanca and an overview of Academy Award-winning films.

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Nicholson Memorial Library System and is open to adults ages 18 and older. The Central Library is located at 625 Austin St., in Downtown Garland. Due to planned construction, event locations are subject to change. Please visit our website, www.library.garlandtx.gov, for the latest information. Please be aware that photographs and video may be taken at Library programs for use in print and/or electronic media at the Library’s discretion.
