Family Movie Night: Cool Runnings

Feel the rhythm and the rhyme as you cheer on the Jamaica Olympic bobsled team while watching this classic movie. When three Jamaican athletes fail to make the Summer Olympics, they join together to form a bobsled team in the Winter Olympics. Watch as they overcome stereotypes and earn the respect of the stuffy, traditional Winter Olympic powers. We’ll have photo ops, Olympic crafts, light snacks and more.
