Football Fans Watch Big Game On Big Screen
Football fans came together to watch the Super Bowl on a super-sized screen. MovieLounge on Rogers Avenue in Fort Smith hosted its first Super Bowl party and offered fans the opportunity to watch the game on a 40-foot screen.
“It’s really great,” said fan Bob Robinson. “It’s bigger than life.”
Most of the crowd was cheering for the Ravens. Many fans said they were hoping for a Ravens victory so retiring player Ray Lewis could end his career on a high note.
There were fewer 49ers fans in attendance, but they were just as dedicated to their team.
“I’m from Oklahoma, and growing up in Oklahoma you’re either a Dallas Cowboy fan or a Kansas City fan,” said 49er fan Tommy Taylor. “But when Joe Montana threw the catch to Dwight Clark in the endzone and beat the Cowboys, I become a 49ers fan that night.”
It was the first Super Bowl party for the MovieLounge which will celebrate its one year anniversary this spring.
“This is a great place – food’s great, the beer’s great. It’s a lot of fun,” said Kathie Smith who was cheering for the Ravens.
