Please join us for Movies at the Center presented by Suffolk Center for Cultural Arts in partnership with Suffolk Tourism. On Thursday, February 7, 2019, we’ll be showing modern classic film Remember The Titans. This is the true story of a newly appointed African-American coach and his high school team on their first season as a racially integrated unit.
Suburban Virginia schools have been segregated for generations. One Black and one White high school are closed and the students sent to T.C. Williams High School under federal mandate to integrate. The year is seen through the eyes of the football team where the man hired to coach the Black school is made head coach over the highly successful white coach. Based on the actual events of 1971, the team becomes the unifying symbol for the community as the boys and the adults learn to depend on and trust each other. Starring Denzel Washington, this 2000 film is rated PG and has a running time of 1 hour and 53 minutes.
