In honor of Armed Forces Day, active members and veterans of the U.S. military can receive a free ticket to see D-Day: Normandy 1944 at the Rangos Omnimax Theater at Carnegie Science Center on May 16 by presenting their military ID at the ticket counter (one ticket per person).

Additionally, throughout the run of the movie, active members and veterans who are seeing the movie receive $1 off the price of any size popcorn.

D-Day: Normandy 1944, narrated by Tom Brokaw, tells the story of June 6, 1944, which was the largest Allied operation of World War II in Normandy, France. It explains in detail why and how this region became the most important location in the world during the end of 1943 through August 1944.

The documentary blends various filming techniques, such as computer-generated imagery, archival photos, animated cartography, aerial footage, and live action re-enactments. The film explains D-Day and the Battle of Normandy through five chapters, including the importance of the operation, how it was carried out, and its legacy. Pascal Vuong is the director and writer.

“Family audiences the world over will discover exactly why and how, from the end of 1943 through August 1944, history was defined in this region of France,” Vuong said. “And why, 70 years later, we in the western world should all be grateful to those who gave everything, including their lives, for our Liberty.”

D-Day: Normandy 1944 opens Friday, May 15 at the Science Center and is sponsored locally by Baierl Subaru.
