The Arromanches 360 cinema is an immersive experience with 9 screens showing a high definition film containing archive footage of the D-Day Landings and the Battle of Normandy. Located on the clifftops at Arromanches, the cinema dominates over the remains of the Mulberry B harbour at Gold Beach. Co-financed by the Région Basse-Normandie and the Mémorial de Caen, the film is produced by the makers of the hugely successful French television WW2 documentary series, Apocalypse. Presented in high definition on the circular cinema of 9 screens, the film tells the story of the Battle of Normandy with archive footage gathered from around the world, and is a tribute to the soldiers from all countries and the 20,000 civilians killed during the liberation of Europe.
