Remember The Titans
Sunday, May 23 Only!
Starring Denzel Washington, Will Patton & Wood Harris

Experience this powerful and heartfelt film back on The Strand's giant screen in digital surround sound for one day only!

 

Remember the Titans is based on the The true story of a newly appointed African-American Coach (Denzel Washington) & his high school team on their first season as a racially integrated unit.

 

According to Coach Herman Boone in an article published by ESPN, he really did integrate the buses before they left for football camp. Boone said "I forced them on each other, I forced them to learn each other's culture. I forced them to be a part of each other's lives."

 

T.C. Williams High really did go 13-0 during the 1971 season, 9 of them being shutouts.

 

Tourists often went to the real T.C. Williams High School after the movie was released, according to Sports Illustrated, and were very surprised that the real school does not look like the one in the movie. The movie was not filmed in Alexandria; it was filmed in various locations in Georgia.

 

A story recounted by director Paul Thomas Anderson on the Director's Cut podcast says that despite a Pasadena test screening scoring the film at a near-flawless 98 percent, a Disney executive nervously pondered that there was "work to do" on the film. Nevertheless, the film was a box-office hit and has endured a long afterlife on home video and cable.....and now back at The Strand!

This film is made more accessible to non-fans of football by careful music editing. Whenever the Titans complete a key play, or turn the game in their favor, the music changes to upbeat rock.
