Legends of the Knight Movie Screening


Legends of the Knight Movie Screening

Fort Bend Family Promise will host a one-time screening of the documentary "Legends of the Knight" at the AMC First Colony theater on Thursday, June 25 at 7:30 PM. Tickets can be reserved online at: http://www.tugg.com/events/18975

"Legends of the Knight" weaves together the stirring true stories of individuals who have overcome devastating obstacles, unselfishly given to the community and embraced their inner superhero because of their love of Batman. Through the deeply personal tales of Batman fans, writers and filmmakers, this documentary explores the power of heroic stories and encourages viewers to find their own unique path to heroism.

The film's unique collection of stories includes:

  • Michael Uslan, executive producer of every Batman film since 1989
  • Kye Sapp, a 5-year-old who enjoyed a day of crime-fighting as Batman while battling leukemia
  • Lenny B. Robinson, a successful businessman who travels the country visiting children's hospitals dressed as Batman

This event is being promoted by Fort Bend Family Promise as an inspirational vehicle for anyone in the community. A portion of the proceeds will support the final construction and beautification of the new Fort Bend Family Promise Day Center at 4645 Cartwright Rd. in Missouri City. 

"As a lifelong comic book collector and moviegoer, I'm excited to be bringing a superhero-based movie to Fort Bend that shows how these fantastic heroes can impact us in a personal way," said Fort Bend Family Promise Board Member Bill Mallett. "I've always looked up to the characters’ moral code and sense of responsibility, but it's truly heartwarming to see that same sense of honor and generosity in real-life heroes."

"At some point, every child dreams of being a superhero," said filmmaker Brett Culp. "They put on a cape and imagine that they have the power to change the world. Along the way, many of us lose our faith that this can be true. 'Legends of the Knight' is a return to our childhood dreams of being a hero. Our goal is to inspire everyone on the planet who loves Batman to embody his spirit, engage with the world, and make a difference."
