Special screening for Warriors' documentary at Grand Lake Theater

- The Golden State Warriors held a special screening of a documentary film about the team's 2017-2018 championship season at the Grand Lake Theater in Oakland Wednesday night. 

About 500 people attended the one night, invite-only showing of 'Dub Nation Reigns.'
Team officials invited season ticket holders, community supporters and corporate sponsors.

"I'm a Warriors fan. So anything Warriors, I'm in," said Jim Green, season ticket holder from Fairfield. 

The 55-minute film chronicles the team's journey from the opening of training camp to the victory parade.

Each year, the NBA produces a documentary about the championship team's road to the Larry O'Brien trophy.

Fans say even in the off season, they want to relish in the Warriors' success. 

"Even though we were there, we saw what they did. It's good to see it again. Love it," said Teri Green from Fairfield. 

"This team is one of the greatest assembly of players I've ever seen," said Andy Thompson, the film's producer. 

He also shot the interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage. He is also uncle to the Warrior's Klay Thompson. 

"What they see is what this team is really about. This is not rehearsed. This is authentic. It's in the moment. We're flies on the wall. We're trying to capture everything as it unfolds," said Andy Thompson. 

This is the third documentary the NBA has produced on the Warriors-one for each championship season. 

Team President Rick Welts says he watched the film for the first time with fans at this screening. 

He says the documentary captures what he describes as a hard fought season. 

"The league was more focussed on every run, on beating the warriors, every team, every night so there was a lot to overcome," said Welts. 

While no players attended, fans were given the VIP treatment with complimentary refreshments and beverages.

Fans say they are still savoring the Warriors third championship victory in four years. 

"We were at the parade too, Pretty much anything regarding the Warriors, we're going to see," said Choana Mejia, a fan from San Lorenzo. 

Fans tell KTVU the film made it possible for them to relive the magic of this past .season. 

There are no plans to hold another screening. For those who'd like to see it, there are DVD copies available online at the NBA store and you can download it from iTunes.
