Kirk Douglas nurtured an early determined pursuit of an acting career that led him to the New York stage and later to Hollywood, where he scored a knockout punch with 1949's CHAMPION. The film established the persona - a tough guy who could be as ruthless as he was heroic - that helped make him a top box office draw for decades. A last remaining link to Hollywood's golden age, Kirk Douglas remains as inspiring in life as he is intense on screen. Join us for an in-person tribute to legendary actor, including LONELY ARE THE BRAVE, SPARTACUS, PATHS OF GLORY, ACE IN THE HOLE and 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA.
