The World Premiere of the film BOSTON will take place on April 15, 2017, at the Boch Center Wang Theatre.
Directed by award winning filmmaker/marathoner Jon Dunham, well known for his Spirit of the Marathon documentaries, produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams, and executive produced by Academy Award nominee Frank Marshall, BOSTON is a presentation of John Hancock Financial in association with The Kennedy/Marshall Company. The film chronicles the celebrated history of the Boston Marathon, from its origins in 1897 through 2014’s triumphant race, and features many of the greatest marathoners ever to have run over the Hopkinton to Boston route.
In honor of One Boston Day, this World Premiere event is partnering with the Martin Richard Foundation, with a portion of every ticket sold going to support Martin’s Park. Martin’s Park is named in honor of Martin Richard, who was eight years old when he was tragically killed on April 15, 2013 on Boylston Street. Martin’s Park is set to be built in Boston along the Fort Point Channel in 2017. It will be universally accessible to families and visitors of all abilities.
