D-Day 75 screening of film Saving Private Ryan

A digitally remastered version of the epic Second World War film Saving Private Ryan will be screened in Kent to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Showcase Cinema de Lux Bluewater will stage the screenings from the anniversary today through to Monday, June 10.

Steven Spielberg's 1998 Academy Award-winning film starring Tom Hanks famously brings to life the drama and destruction of D-Day with its powerful opening sequence of the Allied troops landing on Omaha Beach to fight back against the Nazi troops in the war.

It tells the story of the search for Private Ryan by Captain John H Miller (Hanks) and his eight comrades risking life and limb to bring him back to his grieving mother.

The film won five Academy Awards and two BAFTAs when it was released.

James Dobbin, director of Event Cinema for Showcase Cinemas said: “We are delighted to screen this war film which has been beautifully remastered in 4k.

"Showcase Cinema invites people of all ages to relive D-Day, 75 years after the Normandy landings.”

The film (Certificate 15) will be screened today at 4pm, and on Sunday, June 9 at 5pm and Monday, June 10 June at 7pm.
