November Event

Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” – November 19, 2016

Shakespeare’s heartfelt comedy “Twelfth Night” follows the journeys of castaway twins who are separated in an unfamiliar land full of antics, love triangles, and dangerous duels.

The San Francisco Shakespeare Festival will perform an abbreviated, family-friendly version of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. In this beloved, gender-bending play, twins are separated by a shipwreck, everyone falls in love with the wrong person…at first. And a pompous man, “a trout that must be caught with tickling,” has his ego deservedly punctured.

January Event
McMoons Exhibition – January 7, 2017

The McMoons exhibition’s mission is twofold: to shine a light on the 50th
anniversary of NASA’s (1967-68) Lunar Orbiter Project that collected lunar images integral to the safe landing on the first Apollo landing on the moon, and to tell the little-known story of the Lunar Orbiter Image Recovery Project (LOIRP) that began in 2008 to recover the original NASA Lunar Orbiter images.

The exhibition includes original prints from the Lunar Orbiter Project and digitized prints of the original film including a wall-sized reproduction of the first
restored image – the Earth rising. Visitors can also see and touch the original film
canisters and tapes and listen to original audio recordings from the Lunar Orbiter
Project. Also on view are prints and video of the LOIRP Project still underway at
the McDonalds “lab” on the NASA campus.
