The Moonwalkers: A Journey with Tom Hanks at Lightroom

Tom Hanks narrates The Moonwalkers, an epic experience offering a unique perspective on humankind’s past and future voyages to the moon. 

Lightroom’s powerful projection and audio technology will transform the immense space into a vehicle for a spectacular immersive voyage to our closest celestial neighbour. The exhibition opens on 6 December and runs until 21 April. Book your tickets now.

About the exhibition

Tom Hanks co-wrote The Moonwalkers with Christopher Riley, the double BAFTA-nominated writer-director. Original NASA footage and breath-taking images from Andy Saunders’ Apollo Remastered will transform Lightroom’s vast space into an immersive journey to the lunar surface, brought to life by co-directors Nick Corrigan and Lysander Ashton of 59 Productions. 

The show tells the stories of the Apollo missions, reflecting their gripping journeys at spectacular scale. Newly filmed interviews between Hanks and astronauts of the current Artemis programme will grant an insight into the return of crewed surface missions to the moon.

Hanks himself will provide the voiceover, accompanied by a spectacular original orchestral score by Anne Nikitin whose previous work includes the Apple TV+ hit series HIJACK starring Idris Elba and the cult heist movie American Animals starring Evan Peters and Barry Keoghan.
