WATCH TRAILER: Lady in Blue Movie World Premiere in San Angelo Sunday
SAN ANGELO, TX -- The world premiere of the movie "The Needle and the Thread" about the Lady in Blue will be held in San Angelo at the Murphey Performance Hall on Sunday complete with stars of the movie and a red carpet welcome.
According to Historic Beginnings of San Angelo Chair Tilly Chandler, the movie tells the story of the native Jumano Indians conversion to Christianity in the 1600s in the San Angelo area. A Catholic nun from Agreda, Spain appeared to the native Jumanos and taught them about Christ before Spanish missionaries arrived in the country. The Jumanos traveled to the missionaries and asked to be baptized.
The movie tells the that story.
Watch the trailer:
World renowned sculptor Vic Payne, who created the sculptures of the Lady in Blue and the Jumano Brave situated on the banks of the Concho river near the intersection of Magdelen and Concho Streets, will attend the premier.
The world premiere of "The Needle and the Thread" will be Sunday, April 7, 2019 in the Murphey Performance Hall in City Hall Plaza at 3:00 p.m.
The movie will then be screened in Rome and in Spain.
Tickets are still available online through the San Angelo Performing Arts Center's website, at Trudo's Religious Store, and from committee members.
