‘They Shall Not Grow Old’ to be shown at Milton Theatre Nov. 13

November 11, 2019

A “They Shall Not Grow Old” film screening will be held at the Milton Theatre Wednesday, Nov. 13. Peter Jackson directs this homage to the British troops of the First World War with never-before-seen-footage of soldiers as they faced the fear and uncertainty of frontline battle in Belgium. Digitally remastered and now in color, the footage has been studied by lip-reading experts whose transcripts were recorded and used as audio for the film. Overlayed by a narrative of those who partook in the war from interviews made in the 1960s and 1970s, this historic revisiting marks 100 years since the end of the Great War. The Milton Theatre brings this monumental documentary for Veterans Day in cooperation with The Chad Clifton Foundation Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m.
