To celebrate their centennial, Paramount Pictures lovingly restored Wings, the picture that won the first ever Academy Award. Director William A. Wellman’s epic is a rousing action film and a tender romance, with extraordinary visual effects. The breathtaking dogfight scenes exhibit spectacular aerial photography enhanced by the restoration of the original tinting.

Accompanied by Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra with Foley sound effects by Ben Burtt.

Introduced by William Wellman, Jr.
