Heroes on Deck

August 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- $7.50 - $35

More than one hundred WWII aircraft rest on the bottom of America’s Lake Michigan.  This is the story of how they got there.

Join us for the Ohio premiere of the documentary Heroes on Deck: World War II on Lake Michigan, by Emmy winning filmmaker John Davies.  The hour long film explores the critical role of the USS Wolverine and the USS Sable, two Great Lakes passenger steamers that were converted into aircraft carriers and used to train thousands of pilots to land at sea in WWII.  There will be a VIP reception with the director prior to the screening as well as a sneak preview of an upcoming temporary exhibit on the topic.

Tickets for the screening are $7.50 for NMGL members and $10 for non-members
TICKETS ARE FREE FOR VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY.

The VIP director’s reception will begin at 6 pm.  Tickets are $25 for NMGL members and $35 for non-members and includes the screening.
