Premiere screenings set for documentary
A new documentary film about the first Lewisville High School football team to reach the state championship game will be shown publicly for the first time on Friday, Aug. 6, at Lewisville Grand Theater, 100 N. Charles Street.
The 43-minute film, produced by City videographer Matthew Thornbury, includes interviews with players, coaches, and students who were part of the magical 1972 season, along with vintage footage and photos from that year. Even though the Farmers fell just a yard short of winning the title, that season remains legendary in the hearts of loyal LHS supporters.
Friday, Aug. 6, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Lewisville Grand Theater
100 N. Charles Street.
Screenings time will be 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Screenings will start at 2:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m and are free to attend, although seating in the Performance Hall is limited to 300 people. Afterward, the video will be available online and will run on a continual loop as part of a history exhibit set to open in August at the Visitor Information Center, 247 W. Main Street. However, these are the only public screenings scheduled for the big screen at The Grand.
This is the latest short documentary created as part of the Lewisville Looks Back video series, which is one component of the Lewisville Heritage Project. Two previous documentaries, about the filming of Route 66 in 1962 and the Texas International Pop Festival in 1969, are available on the city website.
