The public is invited to enjoy “Chariots of Fire” on Sunday, March 18 at City Hall as part of a free movie series sponsored by the City’s Community of Character Committee. The PG-rated film begins at 2 p.m. and highlights “integrity,” Mission Viejo’s character quality for the month of March.
Based on a true story, the film is the internationally acclaimed drama of two men who compete as runners in the 1924 Paris Olympics. The theme of victory achieved through effort and integrity is emphasized in this beautiful film, which won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Costume Design, and Best Original Score.
Character educators Elaine Portnoy and Bob Hayes will lead a brief discussion following the film, which will be shown on a theater-size screen with theater-style seating and surround-sound at 200 Civic Center, just across from the Mission Viejo Library.
