Did you enjoy HBO’s hit miniseries Band of Brothers? Then you are invited to screen in the Veterans’ Memorial Hall a free showing of HBO’s follow-up miniseries, The Pacific. This will kick off an upcoming exhibit, Never Forgotten, which will feature Henry A. Courtney, who was a local Medal of Honor recipient who served in the Pacific theater.

The miniseries will be shown from May 1 – 3, 6, and 7, 2013 (five nights), in the historic Zelda Theater, located in the Lake Superior Railroad Museum. Each night episodes will begin at 6:00 PM with light snacks and soft drinks to be available. On the final day, it will be last part of the Never Forgotten exhibit opening and will begin at 7:00 PM.

Each night the historic society will be showing two episodes of HBO’s award winning miniseries, directed by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks. The miniseries chronicles the experiences of men and women who experienced the horrors and triumphs of the Pacific Theater. You as a viewer will relive events such as the invasion of Guadalcanal, to shore leave at Australia, to returning home to a country that has moved on.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to view the series, or if you can’t wait to see it again, come on down and enjoy it with us. For more information on the miniseries,
