Mel Gibson’s 2016 Oscar-winning blockbuster movie, "Hacksaw Ridge," is returning to the Parkway Theater in downtown West Jefferson by special arrangement for a three-day engagement during Veterans Day week.

Admission is free, but tickets are required for each night and are available at the Ashe Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center.

Ashe County’s Charles Knapp, special consultant to the film’s producers, will present the film and discuss the impact of this true story of World War II Medal of Honor recipient Desmond T. Doss.

While admission is free, donations are encouraged to help fund scholarship programs of the New River Chapter of the Military Officers Association and the Desmond Doss Foundation.

There will be single showings of the film Monday, Nov. 11 - Veterans Day, as well as the Tuesday, Nov. 12, and Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 7 pm each night at the Parkway Theater.

Each showing will be followed by a short question and answer session.

"Hacksaw Ridge" earned six Oscar nominations, including for best picture and best director, and won two awards.
