Free Movie Night: Race (PG-13) (Wed. 22 Jun, 2016 6:30 pm)

 “Race” (PG-13) will be the feature film at the Free Movie Night on Wednesday, June 22, 6:30 p.m., as part of the “Exercise Your Mind—Read” Adult Summer Reading Program at the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County, 201 N. Mulberry Street.

 

Young Jesse Owens (Stephan James) becomes a track and field sensation while attending the Ohio State University in the early 1930s. With guidance from coach Larry Snyder (Jason Sudeikis), Owens gains national recognition for breaking numerous records. After heated debates, the United States decides not to boycott the Olympics in Nazi Germany. Overcoming racism at home and abroad, Owens seizes the opportunity to show Berlin and the world that he's the fastest man alive.

 

Race is an enthralling film about courage, determination, tolerance, and friendship, and an inspiring drama about one man's fight to become an Olympic legend.

 

The program is free and open to the public. Children under age 13 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Participants will be eligible for door prizes. Refreshments will be provided.
