Screen on the Green: Apollo 13
Tom Hank's character Jim Lovell says the space mission depicted in the film Apollo 13 was a successful failure, in that they didn't make it to the moon but they did make it back home alive. Hanks, Kevin Bacon and Bill Paxton play astronauts who get caught in space with a diminishing supply of oxygen, power and options, while Gary Sinise appears as one of the men at mission control who seemingly work miracles to get them home. 8 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney.
