Marking the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, this film documents mankind's first steps on the Moon and incorporates previously unpublished footage. Witness – on Switzerland's largest screen – how Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins set off on one of the greatest adventures mankind has ever undertaken.

Timed to the 50th anniversary of NASA’s celebrated Apollo 11 mission, this film is a thrilling cinematic experience that showcases the real-life moments of humankind’s first steps on the moon. In this special edition created exclusively for giant screen theaters, the filmmakers reconstruct the exhilarating final moments of preparation, liftoff, landing and return of this historic mission — one of humanity’s greatest achievements and the first to put men on the moon. With a newly-discovered trove of never-before-seen 70mm footage and audio recordings, "Apollo 11 – First Steps Edition" joins Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Mission Control team and millions of spectators around the world, during those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.
