The City of Parkland invites residents to an afternoon of film and discussion for the critically acclaimed movie Rudy.

A true story, Rudy is about Rudy Ruettiger, a steel mill worker hoping to play football for the University of Notre Dame. He faces challenges, including dyslexia and loss, during his journey to the Indiana-based Catholic University. 

Released in 1993, Rudy was the first film Notre Dame allowed to be shot on campus since Knute Rockne, All American in 1940.
