Dollar Movie Night

Edwards Chapel and the Equal Opportunity Office invites Team Edwards to Dollar Movie Day April 21.
Come by Chapel 2 to reserve your tickets or call (661) 277-2110.
The movie is “42″ and will be shown at the Cinemark Theater in Lancaster. The Chapel and EOO hope this opportunity helps you rediscover a man of faith, Jackie Robinson, who broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier, even before Rosa Parks, Freedom Riders and Martin Luther King Jr. The movie has a PG-13 rating for mild language (including racial slurs) and thematic elements, but it has no sexually explicit material.
The time for the April 21 showing has yet to be set.
