They Shall Not Grow Old was filmed from 1914 to 1918 on the Western Front & commemorates the centennial of the Armistice. Filmmaker & Academy Award winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings) creates a moving depiction of WWI through restored original archival footage from Britain's Imperial War Museum. Jackson allows the story of World War I to be told by the men who were there, accurately depicting historical moments in world history, providing a brisk, absorbing & moving experience.

Doughnuts & beverages will be served.

They Shall Not Grow Old is rated R for disturbing war images.

Documentary films provide a deeper study of timely, often unnoticed social issues. Their compelling storytelling engages the heart & mind allowing us to walk in another's shoes, oftentimes providing those rebuffed a voice, ultimately building a sense of shared humanity.
