To commemorate Veterans Day, a free screening today at the Jim Santy Auditorium will feature the drama “A Midnight Clear.” The film also has a unique local connection—although the film is set in World War II Europe, it was filmed in Park City nearly 30 years ago.

The film, which stars a group of up-and-coming young actors such as Ethan Hawke, Gary Sinise and Kevin Dillon, told the story of an isolated squad of G.I.s who run into a small group of German soldiers. They enter into a Christmas truce before the war, tragically, again intervenes.
