Things of interest to me.
The Keith Albee Theater, the Memorial Fountain and the Marshall University campus basketball court are all noted points of interest on a new "We Are Marshall" movie site map.
Officials with the Cabell-Huntington Convention and Visitors Bureau say the special fold-out maps will feature all the film locations of the Marshall movie and direct people to places around town they just might recognize from the movie.
Other sites include Spring Hill Cemetery where funeral scenes were shot, and the Campus Christian Center.
The Visitor's Bureau plans to invest up to 12-thousand dollars on the maps, 75-thousand of which will be placed in restaurants and hotels in Huntington, state welcome centers and elsewhere.
The maps will hit the streets closer to the movie's release, sometime in late October.
The proposed smoke-free regulation would ban smoking in bars and other non-restaurant areas, including areas that the county’s current smoking regulation lets slide, provided they are separate from eating areas.If a public smoking ban that includes bars can work in NYC, it can work here.
Attention Former Charter Cable Subscribers: The cable systems formerly owned by Charter which were sold to Suddenlink have already or may discontinue carriage of this television station in the very near future. To ensure your continued ability to watch our programming, residents in the Charleston and Huntington markets should contact DirecTV at 1-888-777-2454 or the DISH network at 1-888-265-6902.
Although Suddenlink would like you to believe this is the fault of WCHS and WVAH, you should know that we have been attempting to negotiate with Suddenlink since we became aware of their proposed acquisition to avoid this.
Sinclair (the parent company of WCHS and the programmer of WVAH) has successfully reached agreement for the carriage of its signals of its television stations, with many cable and other multi-channel video providers, including the largest such companies, Comcast, DirecTV and Echostar. We have also reached agreement with AT&T and Verizon, both of which are starting to launch video programming in certain of their markets. In fact, as noted above we already have a group-wide deal with Suddenlink, but they have not even offered to extend the terms of that agreement to the systems they acquired from Charter.
HUNTINGTON -- The Huntington premiere of "We Are Marshall" has tentatively been set for Thursday, Oct. 26, with the nationwide release scheduled for the following day, according to Keith Spears, vice president for marketing and communications at Marshall University.
Spears said Thursday that the premiere and release dates are based upon Warner Bros. Pictures' latest projections for finishing the movie about the aftermath of the 1970 Marshall football plane crash. Plans also are in the works to have the premiere at the Keith-Albee, Spears said.
