It’s time again to grab your favorite snack and drink as we press play on the second installment of our summer Movie Night and Virtual Discussion with the Wisconsin Veterans Museum Staff. While we can’t all be together, we can share, discuss, and enjoy our favorite major motion pictures that deal with the hardships, humor and horrors of combat. For this virtual discussion, we will look at the 1970 epic, Tora, Tora, Tora, starring Martin Balsam, So Yamamura, Jason Robards, Tatsuya Miyashi, James Whitmore, and E.G. Marshall. Tora, Tora, Tora is a dramatic retelling of the attack on Pearl Harbor that looks at the days leading up to the event from both the American and Japanese perspective.
Your mission is to watch the movie prior to the discussion, which is available from most local libraries or on streaming services, while thinking about the discussion questions we will provide you. On July 31th at 7:00 pm 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.
