More Chances To See “The Joe We Know” Film

Over a week ago, Onward State broke the story about “The Joe We Know”, a film exploring Joe Paterno’s Grand Experiment featuring interviews with over seventy former Penn State Lettermen that was set to premiere in the State Theatre last weekend. Starting today and continuing through next Wednesday, there will be twelve more opportunities to view the film. The times are as follows.

  • Today: 4:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 7:30 p.m., 10:00 p.m.
  • Sunday: 4:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m.
  • Monday: 4:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 4:00 p.m, 7:30 p.m.

When we spoke with several Lettermen last week, they had not yet seen the finished product but were incredibly excited about the film that originally was going to be a late birthday gift before Paterno passed away. “Guys were crying due to the impact he [Paterno] had and what he stood for”, said Bob Capretto, who played on Paterno’s first team in 1966.

Ron Pavlechko, who also played in the late 60s, and is the Director of Athletics for the State College Area School District was one of the first of the Lettermen to interview, and described the process as “very enjoyable.”

Admission to the film is free and tickets can be obtained at the State Theatre box office.
