Film in the Community offers films throughout the year, free of charge, at venues across Colorado Springs and in collaboration with community partners. All seating for Film in the Community events are first come, first served. Please register and let us know you plan to attend.
QUEEN OF BASKETBALL:
She is arguably the greatest living women’s basketball player. She’s won three national trophies; she played in the ‘76 Olympics; she was drafted to the NBA. But have you ever heard of Lucy Harris?
THE LOST ASTRONAUT:
In 1963, Ed Dwight Jr. was poised to be NASA’s first African-American astronaut, until suddenly he wasn’t.
Emily Ford sets out with a borrowed Alaskan Husky sled dog to hike the entire 1200-mile Ice Age Trail in winter in subzero temperatures, the first woman and person of color to attempt this challenge.
