(120 min) From the director of The Dark Knight Trilogy, Interstellar, Memento, and Inception.
Shot on location in France, Christopher Nolan’s new film tells the gripping true story of the tragic WWII battle where 400,000 British and allied soldiers were evacuated from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk. Nolan avoided computer-generated effects, instead using reconditioned war planes and ships from the period. Dunkirk was shot in large format, and the Virginia Theatre is one of only a handful of theatres nationwide screening the picture in 70mm.
With Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, and Cillian Murphy.
