Albany- Super Bowl Sunday, a day that only comes around once a year and South Georgians are making the best of it. "Having pizzas, wings come down enjoy it 20x20 foot screen, beverages available a lotta fun just to have a Super Bowl party in downtown," says State Theater co-owner Bo Henry.

The State Theater in downtown Albany hosted its first annual Super Bowl party for those who couldn't make it to Jacksonville for the big game.

"This is a good atmosphere and it's safe and they got a big wide screen for the Super Bowl. We're having a great time," says football fan David Small. South Georgia native Russell Dodson lives in the Bahamas but made it home just in time for the big party. He's "havin a great time, rootin' for the Eagles down here, just thankful that Bo Henry is turning things around downtown Albany, really makin' the best of the occasion."

Enjoying good food with good friends. Placing bets on who's team will win.

"The Philadelphia Eagles.... T-O... need to bring him to the ATL," says Dodson. "Watching New England they gonna get it together beat Philadelphia it’ll be over at half time," says patron Mr. Haire.

Divided on teams but all thankful for a place to watch the big game. Theater regular Gene Harris says, "This is the state theater man. You know you don't get to see as much. It's brand new in Albany. I think everybody should come out to see the state theater, it's happenin."
