Tickets are free and will be distributed in each of the dining areas on Monday, June 26; Wednesday, June 28; and Friday, June 30th from 4:30 to 6 PM. ( Wikipedia mentions that in 1942 for the Premiere Showing of Yankee Doodle Dandy tickets were only available if you bought War Bonds )
It is a chance to go away singing the songs that we are sure you will remember ……… “The Yankee Doodle Boy”,“Give my Regards to Broadway”’, “Harrigan”, “You’re a Grand Old Flag”, “Over There” and “While Strolling Through the Park One Day”, to name a few.
Make seeing the film a July 4th Holiday Tradition!
