More New Movies at the NIM!
A World War I masterpiece, a luxury monster cruise ship and
Captain Sparkle Fingers blast into the Giant Screen Theater


Columbus, Georgia – March 8, 2019: Whether you’re looking for spring break
entertainment, World War I stories told by the men who lived it, or the debut of another
Hollywood blockbuster, you’ll find it at the National Infantry Museum!


March 8 – Opening today ...They Shall Not Grow Old. Academy Award winner Peter
Jackson presents an extraordinary new work showing the Great War as you have never
seen it. Using state-of-the-art technology to restore original archival footage which is
more than a 100 years old, Jackson brings to life the people who can best tell this story:
the men who were there. In the Giant Screen Theater daily at 12:30 p.m. Tickets are $10
for adults, $9 for students/seniors/military, and $8 for children 4-12. Kids under 4 are
free.

March 26, 27, 28 and 30 – See Hotel Transylvania 3 and Incredibles 2 in the Giant
Screen Theater. The NIM Kids Spring Film Fest is FREE! The films are offered twice
each day at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. On Wednesday, March 27, both screenings will be
sensory-friendly for youngsters with autism-related disorders and others who may be
overwhelmed by a standard theater experience. Admission is on a first-come, firstseated
basis. Yummy and affordable snacks and lunch options are available at the Rally
Point Canteen in the theater lobby.

April 5 – And fasten your seatbelt for the nationwide release of Shazam! Billy Batson is
a streetwise 14-year-old who can magically transform into the adult superhero Shazam
simply by shouting out one word. His newfound powers soon get put to the test when he
squares off against the evil Dr. Thaddeus Sivana. Showtimes at 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
Thursday through Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for students/seniors/military,
and $8 for children 4-12. Kids under 4 are free.
