Locals treated to advanced screening of upcoming Supergirl

Some Coachella Valley residents got a sneak peek of ‘Supergirl’ on Saturday, ahead of the show making its fall debut on CBS.

CBS Local 2 sponsored the big screen event and gave out some free tickets to locals. We found out the message behind the new series is an empowering one for young heroes.

People of all ages whipped on their capes and flew into action for the advanced screening of the new CBS action-packed drama.

More than 100 people set their eyes on the big screen at the Desert Cinemas Ultramax Theater in Cathedral City for a first look at the pilot episode.

“I thought it was really, really cool. I can’t wait to watch it again,” said 10-year-old Alana Firman.

Chris Parman, director of community events in Cathedral City, said, “They’re getting to see it one month to the day ahead of everyone else in the United States.”

Based on the CD Comics character Kara Zor-El, Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities.

It just so happens the ‘Super Parents’ of the creators of the show live right here in the Coachella Valley and helped make the sneak peek showing possible.

Our own Super-Anchor Brooke Beare used her public speaking powers to emcee the event, and saved the day for the young ones by signing autographs.

The showing — all about girl power.

Supergirl premiers on Monday, October 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS Local 2.
