42 Rated PG-13

Come see '42' (rated PG-13) at the Byrd theater for $2 with me! This is a cash only theater but there is an ATM on site. If anyone is hungry, we may grab dinner after. -Rose

Synopsis
In 1947, Branch Rickey put himself at the forefront of history when he signed Jackie Robinson to the Brooklyn Dodgers, 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 other players.

Facing blatant racism from every side, even his own team, 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.

    Let's plan to meet outside the ticket booth. With this large of a crowd, I am hoping to get there by 6:45pm so I can send folks in to save seats. Let's plan to sit under the Chandelier to make it easy to locate us. If you are not with the group eating before the movie, we will grab dinner after the movie. :) If you need to reach me, my cell is[masked] or 399-ROSE or FXY-ROSE for those that remember words easier than numbers. I am looking forward to seeing you tonight!

      I don't get off until 6pm so the earlier I can get down there is about 6:30pm. That doesn't leave me much time for dinner beforehand but others are welcome to join you! :-)
