Jackie Robinson and the strides he made for equality are celebrated each April 15. This year, we are including a special showing of "42" on Jackie Robinson Day. Come to Hempstead Hall for multiple showings of this fantastic movie beginning Thursday, April 15. The movie will be shown multiple times through Saturday, April 17.
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.
All movie showings will feature socially-distanced seating for up to 100 people at a time. There will be multiple showings of each movies to allow for COVID-19 guidelines to be followed.
