Film Screening: ‘Hidden Figures’
September 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
On Thursday, September 20, Newcastle City Precinct will come to life with Energise – a celebration of energy and ideas, the spirit of creativity, the heart of imagination and the joy of community. Get a group of friends together and head into the city for music, a moonlight movie, roving performers, twilight markets, food and fun.
As part of the Energise festival, we’re running our next film screening at NeW Space! And in the spirit of bold ideas and imagination, we’re screening the incredible 2016 biographical drama film, Hidden Figures, starring Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monáe.
Based on a true story, Hidden Figures tells the story of three black female mathematicians who worked at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) during the Space Race, and whose brilliant contributions were critical to the success of the Mercury-Atlas 6 space flight.
Come join us at the Campus Green amphitheatre just outside NeW Space for a movie night under the stars. Popcorn and other snacks will be served.
