Sylvan Lake Film Society returns with a true story both epic and inspiring.

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom charts the many struggles that took Nelson Mandela from South Africa’s rural Cape region to armed struggle and arrest, and then to the president’s mansion as his nation’s first democratically elected leader. Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom transforms the autobiography of the same name into a rousing, spirited film, flawlessly portrayed by acclaimed British actor Idris Elba in the title role.

Join us at Landmark Cinemas Monday (Feb. 24th) to see this story unfold on the big screen. Tickets are $8 each, season passes $16 (you get one movie free!), available at the library until 5 p.m. Monday, or at the theater the night of the movie. The show starts at 6:50 p.m., so be there early to get a good seat!
