Photo Finish 5K Special Event! Harold Abrahams runs to discredit anti-Semitism and Eric Lidell runs to testify to the power of Christian faith. Both make it to the 1924 Paris Olympics, where character and sportsmanship conflict. This inspiring drama casts their struggles against the changing face of a rugged empire. This surprise Best Picture Oscar winner boasts an instantly recognizable score by Vangelis — a feat of ’80s synth nostalgia that topped the Billboard charts.
In conjunction with the Photo Finish 5K, presented by MVP Health Care, admission to the screening is pay-what-you-can. Plus, you’ll be able to enter the name of your favorite charity in a special 50/50 drawing to receive half the proceeds from the evening’s screening. Winner to be drawn at random.
