Starring Tom Hanks and Matt Damon and directed by Steven Spielberg, this OSCAR winner portrays the courage and selflessness of soldiers during WWII. Sponsored by Dean Prigmore and Patrice Taylor, this special Sunday screening of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN is in honor of Veterans.
Based on true events, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN recounts the journey of three soldiers as they search for Private James Ryan to inform him about the deaths of his three brothers and take him back to America. Audiences will witness accurate depictions of life as a soldier on the battlefield as they watch these men’s harsh struggles in their mission.
“[Saving Private Ryan] accomplishes something I had been taught was most difficult -- making an action-filled anti-war film or, at least, one that doesn't in some way glorify or lie about combat.” –Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
