Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus and Veterans Service Agency Director Christian Farrell will host a free showing for veterans of the movie “The Covenant” at 1 and 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17, at Flagship Premium Cinemas in Monroe, located at 34 Millpond Parkway.

The county coordinated the event with Flagship Premium Cinemas, ShopRite Supermarkets, Inc., Town of Monroe Supervisor Tony Cardone and the Monroe Town Board.

“We are grateful to our veterans for serving our country and this event is another small way for us to show that gratitude,” Neuhaus said. “These screenings have become popular and provide Orange County veterans with an opportunity to come together, enjoy a great movie and share some of their experiences. I look forward to joining our veterans for the movie.”

The Covenant, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, is about a former U.S. Army sergeant and Afghanistan War veteran, who returns to the country to rescue the interpreter who once saved his life from the Taliban.

Veterans can reserve a spot to view The Covenant for themselves and a guest by contacting Farrell at 291-2470 or
