Saturday, March 7th, 2020
Movie: 1:30pm

In 1943, with the Allied invasion of Europe imminent, a newly drafted 21-year old Tony Vaccaro applied to the US Army Signal Corps. He had developed a passion for photography and knew he wanted to photograph the war, but he was told he was too young. Not one to be denied, Tony went out and purchased a $47.00 Argus C3 and carried the camera into war with him. He would fight with the 83rd Infantry Division for the next 272 days, playing two roles – a combat infantryman on the front lines and a photographer who would take roughly 8,000 photographs of the war.
