SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Moviegoers catching the opening of George Clooney’s World War II film at an upstate theater can also get a glimpse of some rare items from the collection at the New York State Military Museum.

The Saratogian reports (https://bit.ly/1nSVCPp ) that the Criterion Cinemas in downtown Saratoga Springs is screening “The Monuments Men” on Friday. The nearby museum will display some of its rare Second World War items at the theater from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The items on display will include Army uniforms, war bond posters and captured German weapons. A re-enactor will present a 1940s radio show during the exhibit.

“The Monuments Men” tells the true-life story of a group of museum directors, curators and art historians who went behind enemy lines during the war in Europe to rescue priceless masterpieces stolen by the Nazis.
