Lone Survivor, the film depicting Patchogue Navy SEAL Michael Murphy as part of a four-member SEAL team during the mission that he was killed, is now playing in movie theaters nationwide as of Friday.

Lt. Michael Murphy, of Patchogue, was a part of a four-member SEAL team, and was shot on June 29, 2005 while on duty. Murphy has been posthumously honored with a warship, numerous awards, a previously released film and even a workout named after him.

The film had previously been screened for friends and family of Murphy in Ronkonkoma in early December, and entered a limited release on Dec. 27.

Actor Taylor Kitsch plays Murphy, and co-stars with Mark Wahlberg, Emile Hirsch and Ben Foster.
