Continue reading below

A documentary film recounting the life story of legendary Lynn athlete Harry Agganis is coming to the city this week. “Agganis — The Golden Greek, Excellence to the End” will be shown at City Hall Memorial Auditorium on Thursday at 6 p.m. The screening is a fund-raiser for the Agganis Foundation, which has awarded $1.5 million in scholarships to 861 student athletes since it was formed after Agganis’s death in 1955. Tickets are $33 and include a reception after the movie. Tickets are available at www.agganisfoundation.com and www.lynnauditorium.com or by calling 781-593-7311. The film, which premiered in Boston last November, is narrated by Boston sports personality Clark Booth. Greg Agganis, a grand-nephew of Harry Agganis and a foundation trustee, and his father, Michael Agganis, served as coexecutive producers. Old Neighborhood Foods, Eastern Bank, Greg Agganis, and Demoulas Market Basket are the event’s major sponsors, with each donating $10,000. On Thursday morning, meanwhile, about 1,700 Lynn high school juniors and seniors will attend an interactive presentation of the film at City Hall auditorium, which will include a discussion moderated by WCVB-TV sports anchor Mike Lynch.
