Spielberg visits Richmond to discuss "Lincoln"

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Film director, Steven Spielberg, was back in town tonight to talk about "Lincoln".

Spielberg, along with the screenwriter, and the historian who brought the character of Lincoln to life, talked about the movie to a sold out crowd at the Landmark Theater.

We caught up with several people in line just before the show.

Many crowd goers were just excited to see the director. Others were hoping they were going to get a little bit more information. 

"Lincoln" was filmed here in Richmond and Petersburg.

The movie brought in about $35 million to Virginia.
