Glory (1989 Movie)
July 9, 2021 @ 8:00 pm
One of the finest films ever made about the American Civil War, Glory also has the honor of being the first major Hollywood film to acknowledge the vital contribution of African American soldiers to the country’s historic struggle. Based on the books Lay This Laurel, by Lincoln Kirstein, One Gallant Rush, by Peter Burchard, and the wartime letters of Robert Gould Shaw, the film tells the story of the 54th Regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, an all-black unit comprising Northern freemen and escaped slaves. Glory stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Tickets are $9 for adults, and $8 for seniors, students, and military. The organ pre-show on the Mighty Allen Theatre Organ will begin a half-hour before showtime.
