FREE Showing of American Classic film ‘Hail the Conquering Hero’ in Honor of Veterans Day
Gold Coast Film International Film Festival says ‘thank you’ to Vets & the community with free screening
North Hempstead, NY – North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board, proud founding sponsors of the 2016 Gold Coast International Film Festival (GCIFF), announce that the GCIFF will generously be providing a FREE screening of “Hail the Conquering Hero” at the Great Neck Squire Theater, 115 Middle Neck Road in Great Neck. The film will be shown at 1:30 p.m. on November 11 in honor of Veterans Day. Tickets can be reserved online at www.goldcoastfilmfestival.org or by call 516-829-2570.
Academy-Award-wining writer and director Preston Sturges delivers a hilarious satire on the American penchant for hero worship in this quick-witted comedy classic. The film was nominated in 1945 for an Academy Award for best screenplay and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry. It features Eddie Bracken, Ella Raines and William Demarest.
“What a wonderful gesture on the part of the Gold Coast International Film Festival to provide a free movie pass to enjoy this wonderful film festival in honor of our Veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Supervisor Bosworth. “We are proud to be a founding sponsor of the 2016 Gold Coast International Film Festival.”
This year’s festival takes place from November 10 to 15 in venues throughout the north shore of Long Island.
