Nine screen show, in the round, clips from 1944 news reel and footage taken on the battleground, cut together with  modern images of the region in a thirty minute film called 'The Price of Freedom'.  There's no commentary, but there is music and recorded sound, and no seating and the audience is able to experience some footage from several angles.  Before you go in to the theatre there's an exhibition filling you in on the film you're about to see, the action that took place in Normandy in 1944 and remembering the events.

This theatre was built to commemorate the 50th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy Invasions.  The show plays at ten minutes and 40 minutes past the hour between 10AM and 5PM seven days a week, except during January when it's closed.  It's free for children under ten and WW2 veterans.
