Screening: Tupelo Welcomes Elvis Home

August 26, 2009


The new documentary, Tupelo Welcomes Elvis Home, made by local filmmakers Jim Palmer and Roy Turner is the story of Elvis’ first performance at the fair in 1945 and his celebrated return to Tupelo in 1956. During the research for this documentary, the filmmakers uncovered rare film footage of the parade, many never before seen photographs, rare color footage of Elvis’ evening performance in the RED velvet shirt, and some unique and heartwarming stories told by those who were there.

The documentary will be screened Thursday, August 27, at the “Work in Progress” Black Box venue in the Link Center (1800 W. Main) in Tupelo at 6:30 pm. $5 cover, complementary popcorn and soda included. Filmmakers will be in attendance for a Q&A period after the showing.

For additional information, please contact the Tupelo Film Commission at 662-841-6521.
