Premiere of MPF Film "Deadline In Disaster"

May 3, 2012

The story of how The Joplin Globe’s staff carried out the dauntless mission of covering the tornado that ripped through their town has been told in a documentary film that will be premiered on Thursday, May 3. “Deadline in Disaster,” produced by the Missouri Press Foundation, will be shown at 7 p.m. in the Missouri Theatre (9th and Locust streets) in downtown Columbia.

Preceding the showing of the 59-minute film will be a reception and silent auction in the theatre lobby to raise funds for a memorial in Joplin to the victims and survivors. Auction donors and sponsors are encouraged
to contact Missouri Press by April 2 at (573)449-4167 so their contributions can be acknowledged in the program.
