BUFORD -- It's not every day one has the opportunity to see a film sitting in the same theater as one of the movie's actors.

Today is one of those rare occasions, as an actress with a supporting role in the Walt Disney Pictures biographical film "Secretariat" will attend the 1:30 p.m. showing at Regal Cinemas at the Mall of Georgia.

Gwinnett resident Carissa Capobianco plays one of Penny Chenery's daughters in the film, which is based on the true story of the race horse Secretariat, the 1973 Triple Crown winner. The film stars Diane Lane as Chenery.

Capobianco will participate in a brief meet and greet following the showing at about 3:30 p.m. in the theater lobby.
