`Honor Flight` Film:At 3 p.m. Friday, the Pacific Battleship Center - caretakers of the Port of Los Angeles-based USS Iowa battleship - will sponsor a screening of the Guinness world record-breaking "Honor Flight" film at the Laemmle Playhouse 7 in Pasadena, followed by a Q&A with the producer and editor of the film. World War II veterans will be in attendance, including Pearl Harbor survivors. The special screening (check website for ticket prices) kicks off a weeklong run of the film in L.A. and NY.
"Honor Flight" features four WW II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime. It chronicles the Wisconsin-based Stars and Stripes Honor Flight, as they race against the clock to fly thousands of WWII veterans to Washington, DC, to see the memorial constructed for them in 2005, nearly 60 years after the War.
The initial screening for "Honor Flight" broke the Guinness World Record for the largest film screening in history with over 28,400 people in attendance at the Milwaukee Brewers` stadium.
