THE LONGEST DAY – Honoring Our Veterans

November 11, 2018 @ 2:00 pm – 4:45 pm

Honoring our Veterans, and as a tribute to the Greatest Generation, the Uptown Art House will screen the classic 1962 Academy Award winner, THE LONGEST DAY, starring John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Robert Mitchum, Redd Buttons, Richard Burton, Eddie Albert, Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, Roddy McDowell and an amazing cast of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the era.

In 1944, the U.S. Army and Allied forces plan a huge invasion landing in Normandy, France. Despite bad weather, General Eisenhower gives the okay and the Allies land at Normandy. General Norma Cota (Robert Mitchum) travels with his men onto Omaha Beach. With much effort, and lost life, they get off the beach, traveling deep into French territory. The German military, due to arrogance, ignorance and a sleeping Adolf Hitler, delay their response to the Allied landing, with crippling results.

The screening will also include a pre-film ceremony by the Marble Falls Veterans of Foreign Wars color guard.

Showing Sunday, November 11 – Showtime 2pm – Admission $5 Adults/$3 Kids Under 12 – FREE ADMISSION TO ALL VETERANS
