“Fallen” Documentary to Premier in DC, Virginia Beach in May

April 25, 2017 | National News

News Image On Friday, May 26th at 7:30 PM, the Virginia Beach Police Foundation is presenting the documentary film Fallen at the National Geographic 3D Theater located inside the Virginia Beach Aquarium and Marine Science Center. The film will also screen in DC on May 15th – Police Memorial Day.

To date, Fallen has only been scheduled for screenings in Phoenix, Washington, D.C. and Virginia Beach. At the Phoenix Film Festival, Fallen won the coveted “Audience Award”.

The documentary will provide a humanizing look at line-of-duty police deaths across the country, and how these losses affect those close to the fallen, as well as the communities they serve. We believe this will be a tremendous opportunity for you to have an unprecedented look inside the police culture.

2016 saw a 56% increase in officers being shot and killed in the U.S. All sides want to interject politics into these numbers, but all of that aside, there are countless personal stories going untold beneath these tragic numbers. These fallen heroes deserve a voice, as do their families, loved ones and partners who are struggling to pick up the pieces these tragedies leave behind. Through the words of those who have lived alongside these tragedies, these stories will be told.

Not only will this film serve as an educational snapshot of history, but its raw honesty and intimately candid perspective will serve as a tribute to all those who have sacrificed everything so that we may enjoy the safety and freedoms we all take for granted.

The 7:30 PM screening on Friday, May 26 will be open to the public. (The 5:30 screening is invite-only.) Seating is limited so we encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance. Tickets are $12.50 and are now available at or or directly at:

NOTE: There is a special Law Enforcement Officer-only screening scheduled for Thursday, May 25 in Virginia Beach. Tickets for this screening are FREE. Contact Scott Humphrey at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
