‘Captain Phillips’ debuts in Williston


 Captain Richard Phillips and his family arrived to the Vermont version of paparazzi at the Vermont premiere of  ‘Captain Phillips,’ an early showing at the Majestic 10 Cinemas in Williston Tuesday night. Tom Hanks stars in the film, based on the Underhill captain’s experience being taken hostage by Somali pirates. 

All proceeds from the showing—which drew more than 600 people and raised $12,000—went to Champlain College’s scholarship fund established in memory of alum Sarah Elizabeth Ramsey.
