Memphis Heat Returns Tonight



After a highly successful theatrical run earlier this year, Memphis Heat, the locally produced documentary about the city's professional wrestling golden age, returns to an even bigger screen tonight at the Orpheum.

Screening as part of the Orpheum's Memphis Film Fest, the doc features classic Memphis wrestling figures such as Jerry Lawler, Bill Dundee, Jackie Fargo, and "Handsome" Jimmy Valiant. Showtime tonight is 7:15 p.m. Tickets are $7.

Check out Chris Davis' feature story on the film from its initial release.
