Event Details

Come out for a special screening of Strong!, with director Julie Wyman and US Olympic weightlifter, Cheryl Haworthas.

A formidable figure, standing at 5’8″ and weighing over 300 pounds, Cheryl Haworth struggles to defend her champion status as her lifetime weightlifting career inches towards its inevitable end. Strong! chronicles her journey and the challenges this unusual elite athlete faces, exploring popular notions of power, strength, beauty, and health.

Community Cinema is a monthly screening series, September through May, that previews local and national films. Screenings are followed by a panel discussion, featured speaker, or other presentation. All screenings are free and open to the public.
