Doors 7:00 PM / Start 7:30 PM @ The Mini - 1329 Main St.
Groundbreaking docudrama, Pumping Iron, provides a compelling portrayal of the bodybuilding industry in the mid-1970. As the film’s central figures prepare themselves for the 1975 Mr. Olympia competition in Pretoria, South Africa, a spotlight is shined on this rather niche sport. World-famous, five-time Mr. Olympia champion, “the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger” is at the forefront of the film. Contestants compete in a tight-knit community, simultaneously supporting and taunting one another in a battle to be the best, to stand at the top of the number-one platform. (85 min)
