It was the first showing of the movie "Bully' on Friday in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Theater in downtown Lexington held a special screening of the documentary, which takes an inside look at children who are bullied in schools.

Afterward the movie a panel was held to talk about how the community can help stop bullying.

Carol and Darryl Denham, who lost their son last winter after he committed suicide after being constantly bullied were on that panel.

They say it has to be a change in our culture, putting more emphasis in young children's lives on showing compassion, respect and acceptance towards others.

The Kentucky Theater is also holding a special screening on April 27th, the in-service day, in an attempt to get more teachers, administrators and even students to come see the film.
