D-Day @ Imax, #SherlockLives, King Louis

August 29, 2014 – This afternoon we met friends at the St. Louis Science Center to watch a film on D-Day in the enormous Imax theatre.

The film was amazing and I would highly recommend it.  It offered a big picture perspective of the planning, execution, and strategic importance of D-Day.  The motion graphics and aerial footage in and around Normandy was absolutely breathtaking on the screen of the Imax:
Mark your calendars!  A Sherlock Holmes exhibit will be coming to the Science Center this fall, and we’re definitely planning on going!
Most of our family are fans of Sherlock after reading the Doyle’s books and seeing the stories portrayed on television from Ronald Howard, Basil Rathbone, Jeremy Brett, and Benedict Cumberbatch.

This red telephone booth is a reference to the iconic booth near St. Bart’s Hospital where Sherlock Holmes staged his death in the “Sherlock” BBC TV Series.  The real telephone booth at St. Bart’s has become a landmark for Sherlock fans and messages are posted on the phone booth all the time.
Following the film, we had a picnic in Forest Park:
