About the Movie

Epic in scope and theme, “Glory” reveals the powerful true story of the very first black fighting unit in US history—the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, comprised of 1,007 volunteer black soldiers who journeyed from far and wide to answer the historic call of duty.

Bolstered by exceptional cinematography, powerful storytelling, and an Oscar-winning performance by Denzel Washington, “Glory” remains one of the most highly-acclaimed Civil War movies ever made.

Originally released in 1989, the film stars Washington as Pvt. Trip, a former slave who volunteers to be part of the 54th Massachusetts, Matthew Broderick as Col. Robert Gould Shaw, who assumes command of the regiment – which by law could only be led by a white man, along with Morgan Freeman, Cary Elwes, and Andre Braugher.

You Can Have Dinner, too!

Moviegoers have the option to have dinner in Towngate’s social room prior to the screening. Park once and enjoy twice the fun!

Dinners will be served promptly at 6:30 p.m. before each film. After dinner, head upstairs for the movie at 7:30 p.m. The cost for dinner is $30 and includes your seat for the movie, all food, coffee, tea, water and a box of popcorn to enjoy during the film. Beer and wine are available for purchase.
