I just took the first “Anthropoid Tour” that Marcus has offered and was very impressed. He took about 20 minutes to set the movie up with an easy to understand history, showed the 2016 version of the movie in a 1930’s cinema theater and then took us to some of the places featured in the movie.
During the tour, he handled a breadth of questions related to those difficult days factually but with language that would be easy for anyone to follow.
I highly recommend this tour. It will probably take about 4-5 hours depending on your questions and pace. Just one final thing that those with small children might want to consider; the 2016 version of the movie is realistic and intense.Greg
