LANSING, Mich. — State Sen. Peter MacGregor, R-Rockford, again offered to pay the ticket price for any veteran or active military personnel who wants to see the new film “12 Strong” at the NorthStar Cinemas in Rockford.

“I was pleased with the response from last week’s event, and it was a pleasure to meet some of our local veterans,” MacGregor said. “I’ll be covering tickets again this week in case anybody couldn’t make it the first time.”

NorthStar Cinemas in Rockford will provide a free ticket to veterans and active military members courtesy of MacGregor on Thursday, Feb. 8, for all showings. See the cinema’s website for show times. Vets and military servicemen must provide a military identification or a driver’s license with military designation to receive free entry.

“12 Strong” is an action film based on the true story of the first U.S. Army Special Forces (“Green Berets”) unit in Afghanistan who led the military response against the Taliban following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“Again, I hope everyone enjoys the movie, and if you have any veterans issues that you would like to see addressed, contact my staff at [email protected],” MacGregor said. “As always, thank you for your service.”

NorthStar Cinemas in Rockford is located at 11699 Northland Drive and can be reached at 616-863-0358.
