Special 'Lone Survivor' premiere held at Crossgates Mall

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, N.Y. -- A red carpet premiere will take place at Crossgates mall Thursday night.

The movie "Lone Survivor" will be coming out in theaters everywhere Friday, but there will be a special showing Thursday in the Capital Region. 

The movie tells the story of operation Red Wings, when four seals were caught in a deadly firefight with Taliban in Afghanistan in 2005.

Only one, Marcus Luttrell, made it out alive. Lieutenant Michael Murphy and Petty officers Matt Axelson and Danny Dietz were killed.

The movie is based on all four, and one local woman has set out to honor them. Donna Sullivan has organized a red carpet movie screening Thursday and invited Luttrell, along with the families of the three seals who died, to attend.
