KLRU-Q’s Saturday Night at the Movies presents a full-length feature film every Saturday night, plus extra content that gives the evening an exciting spin. Each film explores the work of legendary actors and actresses through many important films from their careers. Here is a peek of what this Saturday has in store:
8:00pm – Platoon
Two sergeants and a private join others lost in war along the 1967 Cambodian border. Cast: Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen.
10:00pm – Vietnam War Stories
Three million Americans served in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War. Most veterans are reluctant to speak of war experiences, but Vietnam veterans have been even more reluctant because of the controversy surrounding their war and the often hostile reception on their return. They put away their uniforms and tried to put away their memories, but these are memories that cannot be put away. “Vietnam War Stories” shares these personal memories of service and sacrifice, and gives us insight into the experience of war.
