Cinema at the Stroede Presents “Chariots of Fire”
August 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Cinema at the Stroede presents “Chariots of Fire” on Saturday, August 14, 7:30 pm at the Stroede Center.
“Chariots of Fire” is the true story of two British runners who brought glory to their county in the 1924 Olympics in Paris. In the class-obsessed and religiously divided United Kingdom of the early 1920s, Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson), a devout Christian born to Scottish missionaries in China, sees running as part of his worship of God’s glory and refuses to train or compete on the Sabbath. Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross) overcomes anti-Semitism and class bias in his single-minded quest for Olympic gold.
Event is free. Donations welcome. Concessions available.
