Grab some popcorn and a seat in your favorite chair, and join us for a Movie Night and Virtual Discussion with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum staff. While we can’t all be together, we can share discussion on major motion pictures that deal with the hardships, humor and horrors of combat. For our second virtual discussion, we will look at the 1970 film Tora! Tora! Tora!, starring Martin Balsam, Sô Yamamura and Jason Robards. The film retells the story of the events leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Your mission is to watch the movie, which is available from most libraries or on streaming services, while thinking about the discussion questions we will provide you. On July 31st at 7:00 p.m. we’ll all meet via Zoom for a discussion led by museum staff. We will cover themes such as conflict, politics, pop culture, the military and movie-making.
After you register, we will email you the discussion questions and a link to join the virtual discussion via Zoom. This event is free and open to the public.
