Dearborn, MI (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
The new film, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 at The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre starting March 28, will shine a light on a pivotal point in our nation’s history. This film, to be shown for the first time ever on Michigan’s largest screen, provides insight to both teach and remind audiences of the largest-ever allied operation and its lasting effect on the world.
Narrated by Tom Brokaw, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 explores history, military strategy, science, technology and human values behind the events leading up to the June 6, 1944 operation. Using animated cartography, archival pictures, aerial shooting, sand animation, live-action re-enactments and CGI reconstitutions, the film tells the true stories of the soldiers and civilians that gave their lives in this battle for freedom during World War II. D-Day itself is well-known, yet very few people are aware of exactly why and how, during 100 days in the summer of 1944, Normandy became the most important place in the world.
D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 is presented by 3D Entertainment Distribution and is a N3D LAND Production film written by Pascal Vuong. For more information on tickets and showtimes, visit http://www.thehenryford.org/imax.
The Henry Ford IMAX Theatre is located at 20900 Oakwood Boulevard in Dearborn. For information on tickets and showtimes, please call (313) 982-6001 or visit the website at thehenryford.org.
