The Complete List of Films and TV Shows on the International Space Station

By Matt Novak on at

Astronauts on the International Space Station need to relax, just like the rest of us. So it’s no surprise that there are films and TV shows on board for them to watch. I’ve obtained the complete list through a Freedom of Information request, which is published below.

The films are a great mix of old and new. And when I read through the list, I couldn’t help but add “in space” to every title. Die Hard... in space! House of Cards... in space! 2001: A Space Odyssey... in space! Well, you get the picture.

Astronauts used to be forced to watch movies on their small-screened devices exclusively. When NASA astronaut Michael Barratt wanted to watch the new Star Trek movie in 2009 he had to set up a makeshift cinema using his laptop. But no longer.

Back in April of 2015 astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted a photo of their HD TV set-up with none other than the movie Gravity playing. Not a bad little theatre, even if Gravity seems like the last movie you’d want to watch in space..

Below we have the complete list of movies and TV shows currently available for astronauts to watch on the ISS, featuring everything from Alien to Zoolander. And plenty of Star Trek (new and old) in between.

As I mentioned, there’s a surprising number of classic films, like Alfred Hitchcock’s North by Northwest, Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon, and all three Godfather films.

There are also plenty of space-themed and dystopian sci-fi movies, like Moon, Blade Runner, Terminator 2, Armageddon, The Matrix, and both versions of Total Recall.
