Two World War I soldiers are sent through no man’s land to ensure that a cut-off battalion receives word not to go through with a planned attack that has been leaked to the enemy. If they can’t make it to the unit, it will march into an ambush. To make matters even more tense, one of the soldiers has a brother in the cut-off regiment. Filmed to look like a single continuous take, the movie is a masterpiece of cinematography and editing — and won the Oscars for Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, and Best Sound Mixing (it was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Hair & Makeup, Best Production Design, Best Original Score, and Best Sound Editing).
1917 opens Friday, February 21, and plays at 7:30 Friday, 5:00 & 7:30 Saturday & Sunday, and 7:30 Monday (the box office will probably open a few minutes late for the late shows on Saturday & Sunday to allow the early show audience to exit).
