(Yadkinville, NC) – The Yadkin Arts Council presents the return of the cinema spectacular! Join us every other month for this Free Movie Series in the Willingham Theater. All attendees will receive free popcorn and bottled water. Additional concessions will be available for purchase. Reserve your free tickets in advance to guarantee your seat. Walk ups will be admitted on the day of the event depending upon the available seats that are remaining. This program was made possible through the support of the NC Community Foundation – YADKIN LEGACY FUND, and Sheetz. Synopsis: 42: The Jackie Robinson Story (Rated PG-13): Hero is a word we hear often in sports, but heroism is not always about achievements on the field of play. “42” tells the story of two men—the great Jackie Robinson and legendary Brooklyn Dodgers GM Branch Rickey—whose brave stand against prejudice forever changed the world by changing the game of baseball. In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford) put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team, breaking Major League Baseball’s infamous color line. But the deal also put both Robinson and Rickey in the firing line of the public, the press and even other players. Facing unabashed racism from every side, Robinson was forced to demonstrate tremendous courage and restraint by not reacting in kind, knowing that any incident could destroy his and Rickey’s hopes. Instead, Number 42 let his talent on the field do the talking—ultimately winning over fans and his teammates, silencing his critics, and paving the way for others to follow.
