Jump Shot: The Kenny Sailors Story – Thursday, April 2nd at 7:00pm – General Admission $15, Circle Cinema Members $12.50 – Tickets!
Experience the inspiring all-American true story of Kenny Sailors, the inventor of the modern-day jump shot in the global sport of basketball. From collegiate national champion to pro basketball star, Kenny faded into the Alaska wilderness to be forgotten by the sport he helped pioneer.
Sixty years later, he emerges through his most passionate supporters — Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Dirk Nowitzki, Jay Bilas, Clark Kellogg, Bob Knight, Lou Carneseca, Kiki Vandeweghe, Nancy Lieberman, Chip Engelland, Tim Legler, Fennis Dembo, David Goldberg and a host of other basketball and sport legends — in an effort to recognize Kenny in the Naismith Hall of Fame and tell the story of his impact on basketball, his country, and the people who knew him best.
CINEMA EXCLUSIVE CONTENT: The event will include a 15-minute pre-show with Steph Curry, director Jake Hamilton and others describing the innovations within basketball since Kenny’s first jump shot.
