Honor Flight Movie Returns

  • Print

This just in:

Due to popular demand, the documentary film Honor Flight, which the Los Angeles Times calls "enormously moving," and the  Chicago Tribune says is "a profound tribute to America's brave, often unsung WWII veterans" returns to 8 Marcus Cinema locations next week.  
The film features four Milwaukee area World War II veterans and the local volunteers of the Stars and Stripes Honor Flight chapter.  

In Wisconsin, more than 15,000 people saw the film during its three day run at Marcus Theatres December 5-7. 
Honor Flight also holds the Guinness World Record for the largest film screening ever when it premiered at Miller Park on August 11, 2012 for a crowd of 28,442.
There have also been screenings at other unique locations including the US Capitol, Daughters of the American Revolution Constitution Hall, the Navy Memorial and Chicago's Siskel Film Center.

  • Menomonee Falls Cinema 
  • Ridge Cinema in New Berlin
  • Saukville Cinema (WWII veterans Joe Demler and Harvey Kurz will make special appearances at this location after the 6pm showing each night)
