The Battle of the Bulge - Playing Saturday November 29, 2014 at 10:15 A.M. In the winter of 1944, the Allied Armies stand ready to invade Germany at the coming of a New Year. To prevent this occurrence, Hitler orders an all out offensive to re-take French territory and capture the major port city of Antwerp. The Battle of the Bulge shows this conflict from the perspective of an American intelligence officer as well as from a German Panzer Commander. Writers John Melson, Philip Yordan and Milton Sperling remain faithful to the broad outlines of the real battle, and then fill their story with several important fictional characters, and director Ken Annakin uses a combination of hollywood heroics and historical accuracy to deliver an entertaining tale. The film relies solely on the excellently-shot action sequences and superb acting by the leads to hold it together. Admission by donation and appreciated. This film is in a series shown monthly to educate our visitors of the sacrifices made, for us, by our WWII generation. Free Popcorn available
