Feel the Rhythm! Feel the Rhyme! Get on up, it’s bobsled time!! Set in our intimate outdoor theatre, enjoy the magic of cinema with a unique outdoor screening of this classic sporting comedy.
About the film: This delightful comedy is the true story of the first Jamaican Bobsled Team ever to compete in the Olympics. Disqualified during his Olympic trials when another runner careens into him, Derice (Leon) remains determined to compete in the Olympics. The only sport for which he can still qualify, however, is bobsledding. Along with three other hopefuls, Derice forms a team and finds a potential coach — a down-and-out former Olympic American slider with a bad attitude and an unpleasant secret. Before long, these four Jamaicans who have never seen snow are competing in Canada for a slot in the Olympics — and proving that pride, determination and dignity are even more important than winning.
