FLINT, MI — Hollywood came back to Flint Thursday night at the National Amusements Showcase Cinemas Flint West when the director of the new film “Semi-Pro“ Kent Alterman returned to town to speak and to take in the gala premiere of the film which played on two screens of the megaplex. While the film’s star Will Ferrell couldn’t make it, he did appear in a recorded greeting. The film opens nationally on Friday, February 29.
Most of the film was shot on location in Michigan including scenes filmed at the Capitol Theatre.
News coverage of the premiere can be found from the Flint Journal, FJ #2, FJ #3 as well as from WJRT including videos.
Additional news with video from WNEM.
I guess Michael Moore didn’t make it either.
