Harlow, who plays the character Jeremy, said it’s surreal to now see himself on the same big screen that he watched as a kid growing up.
“I saw a ton of movies here growing up,” Harlow said. “It’s my favorite theater. It means a lot.
He also said how much it meant to be watching the movie alongside the Louisville community.
“I don’t like other places as much as I like here, and it’s a basketball state and it’s a basketball movie,” Harlow said. “I felt like the city would want to see it. I just wanted to see it with my loved ones.”
