The War To End All Wars - The Movie

4 November 2023 - 18h00 (extra showing)

Swedish heavy metal band, Sabaton, has launched a worldwide museum project entitled “History Rocks”. At the centre of this project stands the band’s new animated film, “The War To End All Wars - The Movie”, which is to be screened by participating museums spanning the globe around Armistice Day.

The film tells the stories of World War I, granting viewers a better understanding of what the songs on the album are about. It is a musical and historical adventure covering a number of topics and telling the epic tales of various heroes.

The screening of “The War To End All Wars - The Movie” will be a perfect opportunity for people to learn more about this crucial part of history and reflect on the sacrifices made by those who fought in the war.

We believe that by screening “The War To End All Wars - The Movie” in museums around the world, we can inspire people to appreciate the importance of preserving and learning about our history.

Talbot House presents the movie on 4 november 2023 in the Concert Hall. The museum stays open until the end of the movie.
Fee: € 10
