No longer on big screen...
30 May 2006 | by (St. George, Utah) – See all my reviews

"Legacy" was shown free of charge on the big screen only in the Joseph Smith Memorial Building in Salt Lake City, Utah. In fact I think the theater was designed for this film directed by one of my favorite film makers Kieth Merrill.

Seats were available by reservation, but for years it was difficult to get a seat to see Legacy unless you booked well ahead of the showing, it was probably packed almost all the time. But I managed to see it I suppose six or seven times and now own the DVD. I doubt that there was a dry eye in the crowd anytime this great and stirring film ended and people slowly moved to the exit doors...
