More than two hundred turned out the other night for one of the first, if not the first screening of the movie version of the best-selling book Seabiscuit at the Walter Reade Theatre at Lincoln Center. A lot of anticipation in the audience because the book was so univesally popular and even beloved, just like the equine legend himself. No disappointment, it can be reported, in film treatment. “Seabiscuit” is a very emotional, exciting, thrilling and ultimately triumphal story that gets to everybody, man woman and child. Many in the audience were already talking about their plans to see it again. Here are some of the happy campers who’d just emerged from the screening.
