Gather under the soaring warbirds of US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center for a free screening of the 1962 film The Longest Day, which explores the D-Day landings at Normandy on June 6, 1944. Georges Rivière portrays Guy de Montlaur—the subject of the Museum’s current special exhibit—in this Hollywood epic, based on Cornelius Ryan’s 1959 book of the same title and starring John Wayne, (British Army D-Day veteran) Richard Todd, Robert Mitchum, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, (US Navy WWII veteran) Henry Fonda, and many more.
The screening, which is free and open to the public but please register to attend, will cap the Museum’s 75th anniversary of D-Day commemorative events. For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 484.
