Did You Know?
The original version of this film was titled, "Saving The Indian Hills," and was only about the last round Cinerama Theatre left in the U.S. - Omaha's Indian Hills Theatre. However, after a lawsuit was filed against the filmmakers by a member of the group trying to save the theatre that took three years to be dismissed in the filmmaker's favor, writer/director Jim Fields had the idea to expand the movie and include other theatres across the U.S.A. The new film, "Preserve Me a Seat," premiered in late July of 2006 and is now currently playing in film festivals and available on dvd through the production company's website. See more
