In honor of Memorial Day, AARP in Kansas City will be holding a free special showing of the Best Picture nominated film Hacksaw Ridge on May 22 at 7:00 pm at the Glenwood Arts Theatre. 

Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), who won the Congressional Medal of Honor despite refusing to bear arms during WWII on religious grounds. Doss was drafted and ostracized by fellow soldiers for his pacifist stance but went on to earn respect and adoration for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life -- without firing a shot -- to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

AARP will be collecting canned meat (tuna, chicken, SPAM) for the Veterans Community Project. You’ll also learn about the Veterans Community Project’s tiny houses on Troost as well services the Veterans Community Center provides through their outreach center.

Join us to support veterans!  Click on the below register button to reserve your seats.

Please bring two or more cans of meat for our collection barrel!  The first 100 people to check in and donate will get a free small popcorn and soda!
