Marshall movie maps


I can't find a direct link to this story from the AP, so I'm reposting it here in its entirety:
HUNTINGTON, W.Va.
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 Keith Albee was headed for destruction a few years ago. I'm hoping the movie will revamp the interest in saving it and putting it to good use. I have great memories of broadway tours, required plays and scary movies.

I do too. There are so many places I used to go in Huntington that are now gone. It's rather sad.
