Cinema Under The Stars - We Are Marshall

September 8

Heritage Station | 210 11th St

8:30pm

Grab a blanket, a lawn chair, your family and friends and head to Heritage Station to enjoy Cinema Under The Stars! The Greater Huntington Park & Recreation District will present "We Are Marshall" on August 4 on the Big Screen starting at 9:00 p.m. Based on true events, "We Are Marshall" tells an inspiring story of how a small town in West Virginia, steeped in the rich tradition of college football, struggled to restore their community after one of the worst disasters in the history of American sports. For decades, players, coaches, fans and families came together in Huntington to cheer on Marshall University's "Thundering Herd." For this team and this community, Marshall football was more than just a sport, it was a way of life. But on a fateful night in 1970, while traveling back to Huntington after a game in North Carolina, 37 members of Marshall's football team, plus coaching staff and team boosters, were killed in a plane crash. As those left behind tried to cope with the loss of their loved ones, they found hope and strength in the leadership of Jack Lengyel, a young coach who was determined to rebuild Marshall's football program and in the process help to heal a community.

Admission is $1 to enjoy a night Under The Stars.
