Dunkirk Screening to be held at the Air Force Museum Theatre

There will be a special Air Force Museum Theatre screening of the 2017 historical action drama Dunkirk on March 25th at 4 pm.

Acclaimed director, screenwriter, and producer Christopher Nolan (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight) wrote and directed this thriller about the Dunkirk evacuation during the early days of World War II. When 400,000 British and Allied troops end up trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk, France, following a catastrophic defeat, a number of civilian boats set out to rescue them before they are decimated by the approaching Nazi forces.

This screening of Dunkirk is part of the Air Force Museum Theatre’s Hollywood Film Series, which features new and classic Hollywood blockbusters on the fourth Sunday of every month. Cassano’s Pizza King returns as the series sponsor for 2018.
