The Longshots, which was shot primarily in Minden, opens nationally today. Here's my review. I bet local audiences will get a kick out of seeing local sights on the big screen. Though set in Illinois, the movie works as a location showcase for Minden. Lots of screen time fo the downtown and high school.
Interestingly as well: Two local TV news anchors get serious big screen time. KTBS's Gerry May and Ed Walsh do the play-by-play for the Pop Warner Super Bowl.
Let me know what you think of the movie and what places and faces you recognize.
