Last month I told you about the film “Woman In Motion: Nichelle Nichols, Star Trek and the Remaking of NASA,” directed by local filmmaker, Todd Thompson, and if you didn’t get a chance to see its limited theater engagement, there will be a free showing this week on Thursday.
The screening will be held on Thursday, March 11 at 7pm at the Dr. Phillips Center’s Frontyard Festival™.
The evening will celebrate the nationwide release of the film and include appearances by former Senator and astronaut Bill Nelson, former astronaut and NASA Deputy Administrator Frederick Gregory, Nicole Stott — the first astronaut to live Tweet from space – and other special guests.
Woman In Motion chronicles the remarkable, untold story of how Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols transformed her sci-fi television stardom into a real-life science career when, in 1977, she embarked on a campaign to bring diversity to NASA.
This film screening is part of Women’s History Month, which Mayor Dyer proclaimed to be celebrated through the month of March in the City of Orlando.
Tickets are free to view the film, but those interested should visit drphillipscenter.org/ woman-in-motion to RSVP. Attendees will be assigned to a socially distanced box for up to five people.
The evening is sponsored by Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Walt Disney World, elspaces, TyFy Studios, Mox? Integrated Marketing, Orlando Pride, Orlando Film Commission, CREW, Mitsubishi Power, HDR and Siemens.
