World Premiere Of Harry Agganis Film Nov.13

This November 13th, Boston will host the World Premiere of a new documentary film about Harry Agganis—the greatest athlete ever to emerge from New England. The film tells the story of "The Golden Greek" who starred for his hometown football team (Lynn, MA), quarterbacked Boston University's squad and excelled with the baseball team of his youth—the Boston Red Sox. His tragic death at the age of 26 stunned the sports world and left a scar on the local community that has taken decades to heal. This new documentary, titled "Agganis", is a part of that healing effort. It will be shown at the AMC Loews Boston Common Theater (175 Tremont Street) on the evening of Tuesday, November 13th. The general public is invited to purchase tickets to attend the World Premiere and an after party at Gypsy Bar (with open bar and hors d'ouevres). Tickets are $100, with proceeds going to Stand Strong, the Boston Sports Museum's flagship educational program for at-risk kids.
