The Tower Theatre Foundation presents the exclusive Northwest Film Premiere of Coaches’ Wives, Saturday, January 9 at 7pm. This is a full-length documentary about the women who share their husband with a particular sport, and the life that sport dictates for them.
“We hope to reach all levels of the athletic community, but it goes beyond that,” says Producer and Director Jonathan Moore. “I think this includes not just coaches, but pastors, doctors, lawyers, and anyone who is married to someone who is extremely passionate about their job.”
The son of a coach and a coach’s wife, Jonathan Moore and his wife Karen Moore traveled around the country and spent time with several coaches’ wives at all levels of different sports, including: Neezer McNab – wife of Joe McNab Notre Dame High School (CA) Football, Kathy Auriemma – wife of Geno Auriemma UConn Women’s Basketball and Jeanie Buss – fiancée of Phil Jackson NY Knicks/LA Lakers.
Hear first-hand from the unsung heroes of the athletic world who balance love, children, and domestic responsibilities while married to a man who has committed his life to coaching. “The most enjoyable part of making a film is the process, the journey,” says Jonathan. “But for me, the best part, especially as it relates to this documentary, is the relationships you develop along the way; they go far beyond the production process itself.”
Patrons are invited to hear more about the production and the process from Jonathan and Karen Moore at the post-screening Q&A. The premiere will be hosted by KBND radio sports anchor, Jay “Byrd” Reese.
This screening is part of the Tower Theatre Foundation’s Movie Series sponsored by Crater Lake Spirits in collaboration with BendFilm, with projection system from Stereo Planet.
