You’re invited! On Sunday, Oct. 27 at 7 pm, Character Makes the Man – The Story of the Kentucky Military Institute: 1845-1971 will be premiering at the Louisville Palace Theater followed by a Q&A Session with the filmmakers and KMI Alumni, then a VIP reception.

The film, narrated by Nick Clooney and produced by ParkerLane, LLC and in association with the Kentucky Educational Television (KET), is 60 minutes long. Tickets are now available and funds will benefit the KMI Alumni Association.

“KMI is a historical treasure that affected the lives of thousands. It is an institution that the alumni remember fondly and we immediately felt that this was a story that needed to be told and one that we wanted to tell,” said writer and producer, Kiley Lane Parker.

“This is a piece that is historically relevant to both the world and Kentucky, any history buff, Kentucky enthusiast or military veteran will enjoy this story.”

The Kentucky Military Institute was founded in 1845 by Colonel T.P. Allen. Over its 126 year history it graduated men who became military and political leaders, famous actors, NASCAR drivers and entrepreneurs.

The film premieres on KET on Monday, Oct. 28 at 9/8 pm.
