“Leap of Faith” 25th Anniversary Celebration
August 12, 2017 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm
About the Event:
The Texas Film Commission is proud to co-present the 25th Anniversary Celebration of Leap of Faith (1992) with the City of Plainview! Leap of Faith included two months of preproduction and 11 days of actual shooting in the summer of 1992. The short stay of filming pumped more than one million dollars into the Plainview economy and many residents had the opportunity to not only view the filming but serve as extras in the movie as well. The schedule of events includes self-guided tours of filming locations, a screening of the film, and a Q&A with director Richard Pearce!
1:00 - 5:00 p.m. - Self-guided tours of filming sites
5:30 p.m. - Reception at the Broadway Brew (filming site for the Quick Lunch Cafe in the film)
Take a moment to see where several scenes were filmed and visit with Director Richard Pearce.
7:00 p.m. - Leap of Faith Movie Showing at the Fair Theater
9:00 p.m. - Q&A with director Richard Pearce
No ticket purchase necessary. Bring your family and friends!
