Snow Postpones Floyd Collins Documentary World Premiere
The same winter storm that has kept Mammoth Cave National Park and most of the region closed all week has postponed the world premiere of the new Floyd Collins documentary.
In an announcement on The Death of Floyd Collins Facebook Page, what was to be the world premiere in Paintsville, Kentucky screening of much-anticipated documentary has been rescheduled for March 6th.
As a result the screening scheduled for Friday, February 27th in Georgetown, Kentucky will have the world premiere honors.
Directed by Michael Crisp, the documentary tells the tragic tale of caver Floyd Collins who who made national headlines in 1925 when he became trapped while exploring Kentucky’s Sand Cave.
The two-week long rescue attempt and ensuing media circus catapulted him to a national celebrity. Unfortunately he was not able to enjoy his new-found status.
