The Bower Center for the Arts & the Bedford Public Library System
present The Great Escape
A D-Day Celebration Film Series Event at the Bedford Central Library
In honor of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the Bower Center for the Arts and the Bedford Public Library System are pairing up to present a WWII and modern Americans at war film series this summer. There will be a reception and/or discussion following or prior to each of the film screenings. The Bower Center will also have a special WWII exhibit in commemoration of the anniversary.
For part 3 of our series, we will be screening the classic film The Great Escape starring Steve McQueen, James Garner, Richard Attenborough, James Donald, Charles Bronson, Donald Pleasence, and James Coburn. The film is based on the true story of a group of Allied prisoners of war who managed to escape from an allegedly impenetrable Nazi prison camp during World War II.
