Advance show of ‘42’ set for Mounds Mall

Reception, movie to raise money for Special Olympics

ANDERSON, Ind. — A special advance showing April 11 at Mounds Mall of the film “42: The True Story of an American Legend” will benefit the Special Olympics and will celebrate diversity in baseball and in the community.

The film, set for its nationwide premiere April 12, chronicles the career of Jackie Robinson, who was the first black player in Major League Baseball. Harrison Ford, as Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey, and Chadwick Boseman, as Robinson, star in the film.

The showing at the Mounds 10 Theatre will begin at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 11, preceded by a reception for attendees to begin in the mall near the movie theater at 5:30 p.m.

Dodger pitching legend Carl Erskine, who wrote a book about playing with Robinson and is a prominent advocate of the Special Olympics, will attend the reception and the film. Those who request tickets — a donation to the Special Olympics of $50 per ticket is suggested — will receive admission to the film and reception and an autographed copy of Erskine’s newest book, “The Parallel.”

In the book, Erskine discusses the transformation of society’s attitudes toward both racial and developmental differences. In writing the book, Erskine calls upon his experiences as a teammate of Robinson and as the father of a son with special needs over the past 50 years. His son Jimmy will turn 53 on April 1.

“We played nine seasons together, and we were battling to win ballgames for our team side-by-side,” Erskine said of being a teammate of Robinson. “That team jelled with Jackie as the centerpiece. We made baseball history. Now, looking back, that experience is a part of the history of the country.”

The “42” reception at Mounds Mall will include food and beverages, as well as baseball memorabilia for auction and purchase.

Sponsors of the reception and special advance showing of “42” include Community Hospital Anderson, Mounds Mall, Myers Autoworld, Prairie Farm Dairy, STAR Financial Bank, Texas Roadhouse and The Herald Bulletin.

Tickets may be requested at any of the following locations in Anderson during business hours:

  • Community Hospital Anderson gift shop, 1515 N. Madison Ave.
  • The Herald Bulletin, 1133 Jackson St.
  • STAR Financial Bank’s main office, 735 Main St.
