This is good news in more ways than one.
Representatives of the ECISD Education Foundation had the opportunity to screen the movie "Friday Night Lights" recently, and they liked it well enough to seek the right to have a premiere in Odessa.
The revised nation wide opening date for the movie is October 8. But, the Odessa premiere will be on October 7 at the Century Theater. The ticket price for that event is a bit severe at $100, but ECISD Education Foundation gets the money, so hopefully the teachers will ultimately benefit from it. Here's a link to an article in the OA Online News which describes the event in more detail.
Also in FNL news, Pegjovi has emailed to say that AOL users can use FNL icons for their buddy lists.
