Ex-Cat Harvey Mason in Tucson for local premiere of his movieby Anthony Gimino on Nov. 19, 2009, under Sports
Perhaps you’re planning on an early Friday night so you can get up in the wee hours and be on campus around 5 a.m. to stake out a spot behind ESPN’s College Football GameDay stage.
The stage is being set up on the UA mall east of Old Main. You can find all the information about where and when from Arizona athletics official site.
But Wildcat fanatics might not want to miss another unique event Friday night. Former UA basketball player Harvey Mason will be in town to attend the 7:25 p.m. showing of “More Than a Game” at El Con Century Theaters.
Mason, an award-winning songwriter and music producer, is the executive producer of the film, and he also composed the score for the film. The documentary premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2008 and won first runner-up behind a movie you might have heard of — “Slumdog Millionaire.”
With rare footage and interviews, “More than a Game” follows LeBron James and his friends through their early basketball days through their quest for a high school championship.
The movie made its Los Angeles premiere on Sept. 26, when the guests included former UA coach Lute Olson.
