I was able to attend the “Apollo Memories” Lecture and showing of “Apollo 11” (long/extended version) with Memphis’s own Bill Weppner, NASA flight controller for Apollo missions 7 through 13.
At the end he had a slide of links to videos and I thought I would post them here:

I was also unaware that the version of “Apollo 11” showing at the Pink Palace was the short version……at this event, they showed the extended version (although on a smaller screen). I am glad I have now seen both versions!
I took some pictures at the event….you can see them HERE.
