Due to strong community interest, "D-Day 3D: Normandy 1944" has been held over at the Tennessee Aquarium's Imax Theater. The film will be shown at 6 p.m. daily through the Fourth of July weekend.

Narrated by NBC's Tom Brokaw, the film blends archival footage with computer-generated imagery to recount the monumental events before, during and after the Normandy invasion.

"The film does a fantastic job of reminding us of what was at stake prior to D-Day and the incredible, coordinated effort it took to turn the tide of World War II," says Jim Wade, executive director of Chattanooga's Medal of Honor Museum. "And the movie reminds us all why World War II veterans are considered by many the Greatest Generation."

Initial screenings of the movie on June 6, commemorating the 70th anniversary of D-Day, brought in $5,000 to benefit the museum's campaign to build a permanent home.

Tickets may be purchased at the box office, 201 Chestnut St., or online at www.tnaqua.org/imax. They cost $9.95 for adults, $8.50 for children.
