Samuel Jackson to be voice of Chattanooga History Center film

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Actor and Chattanooga native Samuel Jackson will be the voice educating visitors in the Chattanooga History Center's 10-minute orientation film. 

The orientation film will be the first media exhibit visitors will experience prior to entering the gallery space in the Chattanooga History Center. The intent of the film is to introduce the key themes for the individual galleries and give visitors a sense of how the issues and challenges of Chattanooga's past have impacted the city and its residents over the years.  

Rick and Cannon Montague, board members of the Chattanooga History Center and co-chairs of its capital campaign say, "Jackson's known connection to Chattanooga and his iconic voice makes him the perfect narrator to bring the Chattanooga story to life and foreshadow the challenges, triumphs and key events that helped shape our city's history."

Samuel L. Jackson continued, "As someone who was raised in Chattanooga, I'm excited to be part of this effort that will tell the real story of Chattanooga and the events that helped shape its history." 

The new 19,500-square-foot museum is located at the Aquarium Plaza and scheduled to open in early 2014.
