Movie based on 9/11 to be shown at Tupper Lake theater

TUPPER LAKE - The State Theater will be running a documentary that chronicles the physical and emotional healing process in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Sally Strasser, who runs the theater, found out about "Rebirth" when she played it at her other job running the Disney screening room in New York City. She describes it as a collection of personal stories revolving around the events of 9/11.

Strasser called the movie an amazing film, and said it moved her so much that she wanted to show it in Tupper Lake. It's only been released in a limited number of locations so far, mainly the New York City and Los Angeles areas, and she said she was lucky to get a copy of it to screen locally.

The movie begins Friday and will run for one week, with showings beginning at 7 p.m., plus additional 9 p.m. viewings Friday and Saturday. Admission is $6.

The film is unrated, but besides showing some emotionally disturbing footage, it's not graphic, Strasser said.
