Everyone is invited to watch the movie “42,” the true story of an American Legend, Jackie Robinson at Dysart United Methodist Church (UMS) on Sunday, January 17. The story begins in 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), legendary manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, defies major league baseball’s notorious color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team. The heroic act puts both Rickey and Robinson in the firing line of the public, the press and other players. Facing open racism from all sides, Robinson demonstrates true courage and admirable restraint by not reacting in kind and lets his undeniable talent silence the critics for him. This is a great movie to show and bring the Gospel to the big screen.
This PG-13 movie is free and will be shown on Sunday, January 17 from 4-6 PM at the church located at 602 Tilford Street in Dysart.
Popcorn, apple cider, hot chocolate, and lemonade will be served during the movie.
