Just in case you haven't heard by now, and just in case you're not from Harrisburg and you've perhaps lived under a rock that blocked out the light shining from the Hershey's Giant Center just a few years ago as Central Dauphin High schools wrestling team grappled their way toward a state title, now is your chance to see Takedowns and Falls.

Being billed as Spellbound meets Friday Night Lights, Takedowns and Falls Chronicles the athletic journey of a group of Pennsylvania teens and their quest to obtain a state wrestling championship.

 An in-depth look at the lives of dedicated student athletes and families and their commitment to one of Central Pennsylvania's premiere wrestling programs, the documentary has been well-received by audiences across the state as well as nationally. Directed by  Todd Hickey  and Co-directed by Kirk Ledger, the highly acclaimed documentary  examines the world of high school wrestling and its effects on family and community. After a considerable amount of praise for its ability to reveal a group of wrestlers overcoming insurmountable odds all with maintaining humility, Takedowns and Falls is now set for national release, with a stop at The Cinema Center of Camp Hill, PA.

Dates for the Camp Hill location are slated for 1/31 thru 2/1 Other locations include Pittsburgh, PA. 2/2-2/3 Cleveland, OH 2/2 -2/4 Akron, OH. 2/5
