The Holliston Historical Society Presents Spring Movie Nights, 2021
Pop some popcorn, get cozy, and watch these really good films! Then join us virtually for a lively discussion—kind of like a book club, but you get to watch the movie instead of read the book—without any guilt!!
Thursday, March 25, at 7:30 PM is the discussion date (via Zoom) for the following movie:
Hidden Figures 2016 PG
As the United States raced against Russia to put a man in space, NASA found untapped talent in a group of African-American female mathematicians that served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in U.S. history. Based on the unbelievably true life stories of three of these women, known as “human computers,” we follow these women as they quickly rose the ranks of NASA alongside many of history’s greatest minds specifically tasked with calculating the momentous launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, and guaranteeing his safe return. Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, and Katherine Gobels Johnson crossed all gender, race, and professional lines while their brilliance and desire to dream big, beyond anything ever accomplished before by the human race, firmly cemented them in U.S. history as true American heroes.
Available on: Disney + (subscription), Amazon Prime (rent); Apple iTunes (rent). Also will be aired on Nat Geo on Sunday, March 21st from 3-6 and from 6-9 PM.
