If you’re lucky enough to be a University of New Orleans student, you can nab a ticket to the regional premiere of “Flags of Our Fathers.”
The National WWII Museum will screen the new movie, a story of Iwo Jima directed by Clint Eastwood, on Oct. 15. Tickets are limited to current UNO history and film majors. The museum is working to honor its commitment to educating younger generations about the war.
Guests of honor will include two of the films stars: Ryan Phillippe and Jesse Bradford. They will attend the invitation-only reception at the museum from 4 to 6 p.m. The screening will begin at 7 p.m. at the AMC Elmwood Palace 20 theaters in Harahan. The public can’t get tickets, but they can stand along the red carpet.
