Our members are invited to a very special screening of the 1993 film, "Gettysburg," which just celebrated its 30th anniversary.
Los Angeles Filmmaker Raphael van Oostrum, son of the movie's cinematographer, Kees van Oostrum, has arranged this special screening of a 70mm print of the movie. He is inviting members of Southern California Civil War groups to spread the word to others who would love to rewatch this epic in cinema on the big screen.
Cinematographer Kees van Oostrum, Director Ron Maxwell and potentially a couple of the lead actors from the movie will be present at the screening. They would love to fill the theater with Civil War enthusiasts. The tickets are a very reasonable $10; and remember, the film is 4 1/2 hours long.
