    [​IMG] SANDS OF IWO JIMA IN THEATRES FOR ONE-DAY ONLY Select B&B theatres will show SANDS OF IWO JIMA in honor of Veterans Day CHICAGO, IL (Nov 3, 2014) – Newly remastered by Olive Films, SANDS OF IWO JIMA will play at select B&B Theatres this Veterans Day, Tues, Nov 11, 2014 at 4:00PM and 7:00PM as part of the B&B “Retro Night” series.

    Allan Dwan’s SANDS OF IWO JIMA recreates one of the most famous war photographs in U.S. history, "Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima," and is the quintessential WWII film – emotionally gripping, punctuated with intense battle scenes, all bound together by Wayne’s larger-than-life performance. John Wayne earned a 1949 Best Actor Academy Award® nomination for SANDS OF IWO JIMA in one of his most iconic roles, as the battle-hardened leader of a squad of recruits.

    Haunted by his personal demons, Marine Sgt. John Stryker (Wayne) is both hated and feared by his men, who see him as a cold-hearted sadist. But when their boots hit the beaches, they begin to understand the reason for Stryker’s rigid form of discipline, as he leads them into one of the most treacherous battles in the Pacific.

    Well, I'm screwed as none of those theaters are in my neck of the woods so the BD on November 11th will have to do. A great film with one of Wayne's best acting performances.

    The B&B Theater in Texas is very close, but their idea of a giant screen is 50-feet wide. One nice feature in this auditorium is a balcony with recliners and food/drink service with an open bar.
