‘Glory’ blazes back onto the big screen

“Glory,” the 1989 film directed by Edward Zwick about the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, the Union Army’s second African-American regiment in the Civil War, will return to the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas for a 30th anniversary screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 24.

The movie stars Matthew Broderick as Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, the regiment’s commanding officer, and Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes, and Morgan Freeman as fictional members of the 54th.
