Saving Private Ryan - Free Admission with donation to The Memory Box Project
TO HONOR OUR FALLEN MILITARY HEROS, THE BIJOU THEATRE PROUDLY PRESENTS A SCREENING OF THIS ACADEMY AWARD WINNING FILM. Admission is free with your donation to THE MEMORY BOX PROJECT.
Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan. Surrounded by the brutal realties of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.
The Memory Box Project
The Memory Box Project
The Memory Box Project is a non-profit organization that has received national recognition. The program was created to provide families with a designed keepsake box for the memories of their lost loved one.
The ultimate goal is to give one box to every family that has lost a loved one, KIA, in the wars of Iraq or Afghanistan.
All boxes are hand crafted by DB Custom Woodworking. They are produced using solid cherry wood with tongue and groove joinery, and pewter handles. The top is engraved with an American flag, an appropriate insignia, a fallen soldier silhouette and the words “All gave some, Some gave all". The front is personalized with the Name, Rank, Branch of Service and the dates of birth and passing of the Fallen Soldier.
Over 1,000 requests have come in for Memory Boxes and fulfillment is strongly reliant on public and private donations.
