The Daily Herald is partnering with the Blackhawks to present four screenings of "17 Seconds," the documentary film about the Hawks' improbable come-from-behind victory in Game 6 of last year's Stanley Cup Final.
The film takes the viewer from the comeback win to the team's on-ice and inside-the-locker room celebrations in Boston to the championship parade with the Stanley Cup. The film also shows players getting their turn to spend time with the Cup with their friends and families.
Each of the four screenings will be attended by a Blackhawks ambassador who will sign autographs and participate in a question-and-answer session after the film.
Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough will serve as the team's ambassador for the first screening, scheduled for Sunday, Jan. 26 at Classic Cinemas theater, 1050 Arlington Heights Road, Elk Grove Village.
The other screenings are scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 9 at Charlestowne 18 theater, 3740 E. Main St., St. Charles; Sunday, Feb. 16 at Fox Lake Theatre, 115 Town Centre Lane, Fox Lake; and Saturday, February 22 at York Theatre, 150 N. York St., Elmhurst.
Each screening begins at noon, but the doors open an hour earlier so fans can participate in activities such as an inflatable shoot-the-puck game, getting a picture with life-size player cutouts and the chance to win Blackhawks memorabilia.
Tickets are $5. All of the proceeds will benefit Blackhawks Charities, American Indian Center and Classic Cinema Variety Club.
