RBFS Women's Film Series Presents The Founders

Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, #2, Dartmouth Plaza, Lewes, DE 19958
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society is proud to present the Annual Women’s Film Series in partnership with the League of Women Voters® of Sussex County. The focus of this series will be to inform, inspire, and empower audiences by exploring a wide range of women’s issues through the art of film. Each monthly screening will feature a guest speaker who will moderate an engaging post-screening discussion.
On Tuesday, March 28th RBFS will present The Founders at 7:00pm.
The Founders is a screening of the inspirational documentary about the creation of the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA). In 1950, 13 amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes each other to create the LPGA. With humor and grit these underdogs established a sport legacy during a time when athletic women were not accepted in the country club world of American golf. Through rare archival footage, historical re-enactments, and current-day interviews with the surviving founders, a story of champions is told.
Admission for this event is $9 per person. Reservations can be purchased online here or by calling the office at 302-645-9095. Advance reservations will close Tuesday, March 28th at 12:00pm. If not sold out, admission will be available at the door.
