DENVER —The Broncos hosted a private, advance screening of Disney's McFarland, USA Tuesday afternoon for nearly 100 kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver.
Kids from the Broncos Boys & Girls Club and Wilfley Boys & Girls Club were treated to complimentary soda and popcorn and an exclusive opportunity to see the movie before it hits theaters nationwide on Friday, Feb. 20.
"The movie was great! The kids were cheering at the end of it and I so much appreciate the opportunity," said Broncos Boys & Girls Club Director Rich Barrows.
The kids clapped and cheered as the closing credits rolled up on the movie screen at the UA Colorado Center Stadium 9 theater.
Kids were heard saying they thought the movie was amazing as they walked out of the theater and boarded the buses back to their respective Boys & Girls Clubs.
*McFarland, USA *is inspired by the 1987 true story, "McFarland USA" and follows novice runners from an economically challenged and mostly Latino town in California as they build a cross-country team. The film depicts how these underdogs committed to each other and found success with hard work and determination with leadership from their Coach Jim White, played by Kevin Costner in the movie.
