'Walking with Herb' off to a great start


A sold-out crowd at AmadorLive on Thursday, April 29 watched the premiere of “Walking with Herb,” an inspirational movie filmed in Las Cruces. Here is a look at some of the festivities that led up to the showing of the movie. The local premier event benefited Jardin de los Ninos, a Las Cruces nonprofit organization working to create new possibilities and opportunities for homeless and near homeless children.

After the pandemic stopped the movie from being distributed for about it year, it is now back on track. “Walking with Herb” is being shown in 1,000 to 2,000 theaters across the nation, starting April 30.

In Las Cruces, the Allen family has reopened the Telshor 12 theaters and has the film scheduled to run for two weeks. "Walking with Herb" is also being shown at El Paso theaters.
