 The state of Indiana celebrates 200 years of statehood in 2016. And 30 years ago, in 1986, the movie Hoosiers came out. And it's also March Madness! So come celebrate this trifecta and the storied history of Indiana basketball with this free screening. Hoosiers tells the true story of a group of underdogs who become champions. Set in the 1950s, Hoosiers is about a hard-luck, unemployed college basketball coach (Gene Hackman) who gets a chance to coach a small-town Indiana high-school basketball team. Facing resentment from the community and the team itself, Hackman manages to inspire his young athletes, leading them to the state championship with the help of the assistant coach (Dennis Hopper), who happens to be a recovering alcoholic.
