A select group of Western New Yorkers will be able to see the world premiere of the ESPN “30 for 30” documentary on the Buffalo Bills glory days three nights before the rest of the country.
The film, “Four Falls of Buffalo,” will have its world premiere at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, at the North Park Theatre on Hertel Avenue.
Directed by Ken Rodgers, the film documents the Bills team that made it to the Super Bowl four straight years in the early 1990s, only to lose them all.
It will air nationally on ESPN on Dec. 12.
An ESPN spokesperson said the network is working with the Bills to fill the North Park Theatre by invitation only. It isn’t opening the film wide to the public.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Jim Kelly, Andre Reed and Thurman Thomas are among the Bills stars of the era who have been confirmed to attend. ESPN adds there will be a question-and-answer session after the film ends.
Here’s some good news for radio sports fans: Colin Cowherd, whose radio show recently left the local airwaves when he moved from ESPN to Fox Sports, is back on the air locally at 1270 The Fan.
Cowherd, whose Fox show is feed through the Premiere Radio Network, has the noon to 3 p.m. time slot that is being vacated by Rich Gaenzler so he can replace Larry Norton as the morning man at 97 Rock.
Cowherd’s show airs Tuesday through Friday during the Buffalo Bills season. Gaenzler will remain as the host on Monday, when 1270 will continue to devote the time period to discussions of the Bills and other sports topics by a team of Buffalo News sportswriters.
