Views and Brews Winter Olympics Film Series: Miracle

Longmont Museum and Cultural Center
$5 to $8
The Winter Olympics are approaching at a luge-like velocity, but fans can still get a head start on the sporting spirit at the Longmont Museum’s Views and Brews Winter Olympics Film Series. Relive the glory of Olympians past in the days leading up to the games in Pyeongchang at a screening series dedicated to films that celebrate athleticism and team work, with a signature cocktail pairing for each film. The series kicks off with the unexpectedly great adaptation of one of sports history’s most inspirational underdog stories, 2004’s Miracle. Starring American treasure Kurt Russell, the movie tells the patriotic tale of the college-aged USA Hockey team’s hard-won victory over the formidable Soviet skate squad.
