    Thank you, Robert, for your excellent review. A quick check shows that it is at Cinemark 14 all week, and I’m on my way to see it in 3D at 10:30 this morning.

    Keep up the great work.

    I was just having this discussion last evening. A friend was decrying the fact that the current generation (Millennials +10) knew nothing about WWII. He opined that history was not being taught in our schools. I asked him how much he knew about WW I. . . . and we both agreed that the WWII generations probably didn’t know much about WWI either. HOPEFULLY, this documentary will help cure some of that. I would hope that educators will see fit to use it in their classrooms much the same as Schindler’s List has been used by many teachers in teaching about WWII and the Holocaust. I bet if I go see it Sunday, I would have the theater to myself!!
    Thank you, Robert. I had only marginally heard of this movie and had no plans to see it . . . but I will now!!

    Adrienne,

    You may be surprised at the attendance, unless you go during the Super Bowl. I too thought the theatre would be virtually empty, but there were only 4 empty seats in the upper area. Went to the 3D performance and was well worth the extra couple of bucks. An extraordinary experience.
