Our fully functional mobile movie theater features two compelling original short RISE ABOVE films that tell the story of the Tuskegee Airmen or the WASP, and the obstacles they both overcame to be able to serve their country during WWII. This immersive experience is housed in a climate controlled 53’ semi-trailer with expandable sides and equipped with a ramp and hydraulic lift to ensure access to all, comfortably accommodating 30 visitors for each showing. Because of its dynamic 160-degree panoramic screen, the film creates the feeling of being in the cockpit soaring above the clouds. Admission to the exhibit is always FREE to event attendees.
When the Traveling Exhibit visits schools, students are given a free inspirational dog tag featuring the CAF RISE ABOVE’s Six Guiding Principles©. These principles are based on the experiences and successes of the Tuskegee Airmen and the WASPs ability to rise above the obstacles they faced in order to fly and fight for America:
Aim High • Believe In Yourself • Use Your Brain • Be Ready To Go • Never Quit • Expect to Win
