D-Day movie is Mission Viejo’s 100th Film of Character
The public is invited to enjoy the feature film “The Longest Day” on Sunday, April 15 at Mission Viejo City Hall. The movie, which starts at 2 p.m., will be the 100th film in the City’s free movie series.
Highlighting Mission Viejo’s character quality of “service,” the film is an engaging depiction of a heroic chapter in world history: D-Day, June 6, 1944, when Allied troops invaded German-occupied Europe on the beaches of Normandy that led to the liberation of Europe. The cast consists of numerous iconic actors including Robert Mitchum, John Wayne, Rod Steiger, Richard Burton, Red Buttons, Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, Robert Ryan and Henry Fonda.
The film will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound at 200 Civic Center, just across from the Mission Viejo Library at 200 Civic Center Drive. A brief discussion follows the screening.
