The Lost Squadron Screening

About The Event

Insert & upload images/pdf/ppt

The Lost Squadron, 1932

The majority of the story in The Lost Squadron takes place after the war.  The film follows the post-war lives of three World War I pilots who struggle to adjust to civilian life.  Falling back on what they know, they become Hollywood movie pilots.  The plot focuses on a sadistic director who cares little if his stunt pilots live or die, as long as he gets the shot for his film.  Essentially an aviation film within an aviation film, The Lost Squadron provides an interesting behind-the-scenes glimpse at movie-making in the 1930s, while entertaining with an engaging drama.

Tickets are free, but must be reserved in advance. Reserve tickets now.
