Klamath Film will present an afternoon Memorial Day program at the Ross Ragland Theater on Sunday, May 29th at 1pm.

The program will consist of a short film about our local veteran population and the Veterans Enrichment Center in Klamath Falls. This will be followed by a panel featuring some of the veterans from the film discussing their post-military experience. The show will conclude with a screening of Francis Ford Coppola’s 1987 film, Gardens of Stone starring James Caan, James Earl Jones, and Anjelica Huston.

Based on the Nicholas Proffitt novel, Gardens of Stone takes place in the world of the Old Guard, the elite army unit responsible for burials at Arlington National Cemetery and is set during the Viet Nam war era.

Praised for its sincerity and honest portrayals of the men who fight our wars, this award-winning film is as vital and moving today as when it was first released 35 years ago.

The Ross Ragland Theater is located at 222 N 7th Street in Klamath Falls. General admission is $10, $5 for students and Klamath Film members, and, thanks to our business sponsors, this year veterans and their families will be admitted for FREE!

Many thanks to:
