The McSwain Theatre will host special screenings of "Home Run" at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Saturday, June 1 and 2 p.m., Sunday, June 2.
This powerful drama stars Scott Elrod as pro baseball player Cory Brand, who is battling a substance abuse problem and is forced into the only recovery program in his hometown.
He finds new hope when he gets honest about his checkered past and takes on coaching duties for a misfit Little League team.
As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind. With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.
The Dove Foundation recently awarded this film its "Family-Approved" Seal for ages 12 and older, noting this "film will touch everyone who sees it and may have a life-changing effect on those struggling with addictions in their own lives."
Many Christian leaders and key sports figures have also offered high praise for this moving and thought-provoking film.
"Home Run is a gripping movie that reminds us with God's help, we can break free of whatever is holding us back. This movie is a solid hit," said Jose Alvarez, former big-league pitcher.
The movie is rated PG-13 for some mature thematic material.
