Join the Bullock Texas State History Museum for a special screening of D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 on Saturday, May 3 at 2 p.m. The film brings the monumental landing of Allied troops on the beaches of Normandy, France, to the biggest screen in Texas for the 70th anniversary of this pivotal World War II event. Blending animation, computer generated imagery (CGI) and stunning live-action images, D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944 thrills audiences of all ages in breathtaking IMAX(r) 3D as they discover how 100 days in the summer of 1944 changed the course of history.
Following the film there will be an on-stage conversation between lawyer-philanthropist Frank Denius and Dr. Tom Hatfield about World War II.
Mr. Denius landed on Omaha Beach in Normandy shortly after the initial landing on June 6, 1944, and fought in every major campaign until the war ended eleven months later, earning four Silver Stars and two Purple Hearts. He is one of the most decorated soldiers of the war. Dr. Hatfield is an internationally recognized military historian and the Director of the Military History Institute at the Briscoe Center for American History at The University of Texas at Austin.
