BOSTON (CBS) - It's the official story of an iconic Boston tradition. This April, the first feature-length documentary about the Boston Marathon will premiere just a few blocks away from the famous finish line.

BOSTON is an up close look inside the 120-year history of the Boston Marathon told by the champions, race organizers, the ordinary runners, and the fans who line all 26.2 miles year after year.

BOSTON - The Documentary is presented by John Hancock. It was directed and produced by award winning filmmaker/marathoner Jon Dunham and produced by Academy Award nominee Megan Williams.

The world premiere is set for One Boston Day on Saturday, April 15 at the Boch Center Wang Theater. Tickets go on sale February 4 at 10 a.m. at or by calling 1-800-982-2787. The world premiere will include a live performance of the original BOSTON score by Emmy Award winning conductor Jeff Beal and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra.
