Auburn football fans, be warned.
If you plan on seeing a movie at the local Carmike 10 theater in Cullman this weekend, the place might be overrun with rabid ‘Bama fans still celebrating the latest national championship win.
The film Nick Saban Gamechanger officially opened last night in Cullman — along with theaters across the southeast — and many fans are already buying up tickets in advance for tonight and this weekend. So, a sea of crimson-clad fans sporting national championship hats should be expected (even more so than usual).
The Cullman theater made the cut as one of 27 regional theaters to host the Flashlight Media Group production, which is essentially a documentary of ‘Bama football coach Nick Saban. The flick also follows the team through last season’s schedule, which culminated with a win over the University of Texas in the BCS Championship game.
With the start of football season only a week away, this film will probably be a perfect storm precursor for ‘Bama fans ready for kickoff.
What really impressed me is that Cullman even made the cut to host the movie, which is also showing in larger markets such as Tuscaloosa (obviously), Mobile, Huntsville, Birmingham, Auburn, Panama City and Memphis.
With this, and the upcoming Montgomery Ballet performance of The Nutcracker at Wallace State, it seems Cullman is slowly blossoming into a viable option to showcase art and entertainment.
And, in case you’re wondering? Yeah, I’ve already pre-ordered my ticket for the movie.
