Skid Row Marathon (12A)

Skid Row Marathon

Wed 9 May

14:30 19:30

Skid Row Marathon is the uplifting and inspiring story of an unlikely group of individuals from LA's Skid Row, who receive a second chance at life, all brought on by a simple act of kindness.


Follow the story of High Court Judge, Craig Mitchell as he coaches a long-distance running club from the Midnight Mission on Skid Row. Using the redemptive power of running and the camaraderie of the group, marathon training raises the spirits of Skid Row's inhabitants and gives a sense of purpose to a group of people who are homeless, addicted or coming out of the prison system.


"One horrendous act does not define a person in his entirety", and so the film highlights the transformation of homeless and often helpless individuals in to sober, rounded and functioning members of society.


This feature will be preceded by an exclusive 10 minute film exploring the transformative powers of running. Including interviews with The Running Charity, Olympic Gold medalist Jo Pavey, BBC’s Vassos and Sophie Raworth, CEO of parkrun, and best selling Author & columnist Bryony Gordon. They discuss what running means to them and how it has helped them throughout their lives, providing inspiration and context to the main film.


The Movie Meal Deal (MMD) is available for the evening performance.

Book your MMD now. You will need to book your film ticket separately.
