    Outdoor Movie Night - When the Game Stands Tall (Rated PG)

    June 5, 2015, 8:30pm

    Atlantic Christian School

    The freshman class presents "When the Game Stands Tall" on an amazing outdoor inflatable screen!
    Inspired by a true story, WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL tells the remarkable journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel), who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport. When the streak is broken, and tragedy strikes the team, Coach Lad must teach his players - and the entire town - that it's not about how you fall, but how you get back up. (C) Warner Bros

    $5 per person or $20 for a family of 4 or more.

    FREE popcorn!!! Other treats will also be available for purchase at the snack shop!

    They will be showing the movie right next to the playground so your younger ones can play, while you enjoy this powerful movie.

    Rain or shine - Movie will be in the gym if there is inclement weather.

    *All proceeds will benefit the ACS Freshman Class

    Movie Info for Parents: (So you are in the know)
    The movie is rated PG.

    SEXUAL CONTENT
    Chris kisses his girlfriend. Tayshon suggestively says to a teammate, Beaser, about the guy's girlfriend, "Tell me that you're jumping all over that!" to which Beaser replies, "No. We're waiting." He goes on to say that they both took a purity pledge. Tayshon mocks his friend's abstinence, joking, "What's the name of the cult you're in?" Beaser earnestly tells him he goes to a Baptist church.

    Bob and his wife affectionately kiss and are shown in bed together (with Bev wearing a conservative nightgown).

    VIOLENT CONTENT
    Almost shockingly loud, wince-inducing, crunching hits on the gridiron fill the movie and bruise up the players. An on-field fight escalates briefly before being broken up by referees. Two teammates get into a scuffle.

    The murdered Spartan is shot in his car as he waits to give a friend a ride. We hear four gunshots and see his body on the ground.

    Chris' father repeatedly grabs him and manhandles him, even punching him in the stomach once. At the VA hospital, we see scores of soldiers who had lost limbs and been deformed by the war wounds they'd suffered.

    CRUDE OR PROFANE LANGUAGE
    Three or four exclamations of "oh my god" and at least one "jeez." "What the ..." trails off and isn't finished, as does "You can kiss my …" Several players jokingly refer to others as "hos."

    DRUG AND ALCOHOL CONTENT
    We see (from the outside) a wild party where young people are clearly drinking (though none of the main characters actively participate). On the phone, a player asks somebody at the party, "You high, dawg?"

    Coach Lad is shown smoking; immediately after lighting up, however, he has a heart attack, with the filmmakers obviously suggesting that his bad habit has contributed to that medical emergency. (Several of the coach's students are shocked to find out he's had a hidden smoking habit.)

    OTHER NEGATIVE ELEMENTS
    While the guys are at the VA hospital, the movie makes a bit of a joke out of a player spilling a bag of urine on himself.
