Cinema screening at the Memo marking the centenary of the end of the First World War

To mark the centenary of the end of First World War, screenings of They Shall Not Grow Old will be shown on the Memo’s Big Screen.

This unique film brings into high definition the human face of the First Word War.

Created exclusively with original footage from the Imperial War Museums’ film archive and audio from BBC archives, director Peter Jackson brings the First World War to life in a way never seen before.

Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story – the men who were there – by using the voices of the veterans combined with original archival footage. The original footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never before seen detail and brings to life the reality of war on the front line for a whole new generation.

Tickets for these poignant screenings are £3 each and free tickets are available for Veterans and RBL members. Further information and tickets are available from www.memoartscentre.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01446 738622.
