The world premiere of the film “Slice of Life” will be held in Chillicothe later this month. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott speak with Greater Chillicothe Visitor’s Region Director Amy Supple:
Chillicothe’s Sliced Bread Committee partnered with a Kansas City television station to make the movie.
“I haven’t seen the completed documentary yet, but from what I can gather, the documentary tells the story of our town and how it inspired one of the greatest inventions of modern time, and that’s the bread-slicing machine,” said Supple, “So it tells the story of the invention and the inventors, and a little bit about our town. So it should be very exciting for anybody from this area.”
Supple said the town is very proud of their history, but don’t take it too seriously. “It’s all in good fun, but something that we can hang our hat on and have a little bit of fun with. And it’s something that repeatedly people keep expressing interest in. There’s been incredible media buzz over the last couple years about Chillicothe and the Home of Sliced Bread, and the invention. And so we are kind of just responding to the interest that the public and the media are creating about this thing. So it’s very exciting.”
The premier party will be held the evening of Thursday, November 21st. Tickets cost $60 and cover admission for two people. A free showing is scheduled for the following Sunday, November 24th at 1:00 p.m.
