See the 7-time Academy Award-winning film that christened a new generation of war cinema: the “coming home” movie. Three World War II veterans return home to small-town America to discover they and their families have been irreparably changed as they re-enter civilian life. Fred (Dana Andrews) is a war hero who, unable to compete with more highly skilled workers, must return to his low-wage soda jerk job. Bank executive Al (Fredric March) gets into trouble for offering favorable loans to veterans. After losing both hands in the war, Homer (Harold Russell) returns to his loving fiancée, but struggles to adjust. Produced by Samuel Goldwyn, this is among the best films ever made and honored by the National Film Registry.

A Q&A with a special panel of war heroes follows this matinee. If you’re a veteran and you’d like to participate on our panel, contact: Joy Ennis, (919) 462-2054.

Will call tickets may be picked up at The Cary Box Office beginning one hour prior to the movie.

For assistance with accessible seating requests at The Cary Theater after 3pm on Friday and throughout the weekend, please contact the general box office at 919-462-2055 or reach out to the House Manager beginning one hour prior to the performance.
