NIM hosts special 3D movie showing on D-Day

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

At the National Infantry Museum's IMAX Theatre there was a special showing of the events that happened during D-Day.

"D-Day 3D" gives a narrated account of one of the largest Allied operations of World War II.

Monday's screening involved popcorn, lunch, and "crickets"--which were hand-held devices given to the audience.

Crickets were also used by paratroopers during the invasion, it helped them differentiate between friendly and enemy troops.

We spoke with attorney Bill Scrantom who was invited for the viewing and says he's impressed.

Also in the audience today was 93-year-old Charles Maupin. Maupin was part of the invasion in 1944.

The movie will be showing to everyone this Friday.
