Our next Movie Night at the Airport will be Saturday, November 5 (7 p.m.) will feature the 1957 feature “The Spirit of St. Louis”, directed by Academy Award winner Billy Wilder and starring Jimmy Stewart in the role he lobbied for years to play.
Our movie nights are held, appropriately enough, in the Spirit of St. Louis 2 project hangar at Gnoss Field. Host Robert Ragozzino, pilot and lead organizer of the SOS2 project, will be on hand to introduce the movie.
Just think; you can come watch the definitive movie recreation of Lindbergh’s 1927 solo, non-stop flight from New York to Paris in an airplane factory while sitting next to the replica Spirit in which Robert will re-create the flight in real life on its’ 90th anniversary next May.
The trip in May will be live-cast on NOVA. Seeing this movie will give you historical context in which you will gain a fuller understanding of the monumental task at hand for Robert.
Tickets are $2 for adults, 50 cents for kids.
When arriving at the airport (451 Airport Road, Novato), Binford Road will drop you right in the parking lot. The Spirit of St. Louis 2 hangar is the big hangar/office building just to your right; look for signs and people to help direct you inside.
