The votes are in and “The Dish” won by a very narrow margin. That means next time we WILL watch “Contact” – but for this Sunday night we get to enjoy this award winning Australian drama about a small town suddenly caught up in the Apollo XI landing on the moon.

**You must download the movie before we start and it can take > 1hr so plan ahead**

The way this works is we have a broadcast studio in our Meeting Room along with a chatroom. It would be great if we could broadcast the entire movie directly to you, while you watched and chatted but that’s just not fair to those who deserve their royalties for creating this entertainment.

In order to watch along with us you must have your own copy of “The Dish”, either on DVD/Video or by download. You can rent or buy it but everyone needs to obtain their own copy. When the movie starts we will play the audio stream through our broadcast channel along with an occasional freeze frame to allow you to keep your own copy queued up with everyone else. It works surprisingly well, allowing us to take breaks when we want to and still all be watching the movie at the same time. And we all get to watch the movie in hi-res, big-screen glory, without the blocky, jerky quality of streamed video. 

It’s a great time, as anyone who joined us for movie night #1 (Apollo 13) can tell you. The added insights from our members with insider space and astronomy knowledge make the experience one of a kind. We tweet about these events using the hashtag #STMN if you want to invite your space Tweet followers to join us. This event is open to all.
