Fly Fishing Legend Joe Humphreys Documentary To Screen At State Theatre

The State Theatre will celebrate legendary Penn State alumnus and fly fishing pioneer Joe Humphreys’ 90th birthday by screening “Live The Stream,” an award-winning documentary about him, on Friday, January 18.

Humphreys is a native of State College and a member of the Fly Fishing Hall of Fame. He graduated from Penn State in 1957 and spent 19 years as a fly fishing instructor in Penn State’s angling program.

The documentary depicts Humphreys showcasing the beauty of State College streams, as well as fly fishing across the country and internationally. Produced by Nomadic, a company founded by Penn State alumnus Lucas Bell and his wife Meigan, “Live The Stream” won awards at multiple film festivals this fall.

There will be screenings at 6:30 and 9 p.m. More than 500 seats are available at each time, although the 6:30 show is nearly sold out. Tickets can be purchased on The State Theatre’s website for $23.50. Penn State students receive a 30 percent discount off tickets for the 9 p.m. screening when they use the promo code LTS9SIGN.

This weekend marks the first time the film will be shown in Humphreys’ hometown of State College. Merchandise will be available at the State Theatre, including pieces signed by Humphreys and a silent auction. Funds raised will go towards finishing the film, which will be released on platforms including iTunes and Netflix.
