Illinois Valley Young Life and the Bureau Valley FCA Chapter share the same mission - to lead youth to Christ.

They will be teaming up for a movie night at the Apollo Theater in Princeton on Friday, Oct. 30, with a viewing of "Overcomer" starting at 9:15 p.m. The movie is open to all area high school students, not just limited to BV and Princeton students.

There is free admission and free popcorn. Buc Grey of Young Life suggest kids should bring money for additional concessions.

Masks are required as the event will be following CDC pandemic guidelines.

"Overcomer" is a 2019 drama which tells the inspirational story of a high school girl who overcomes personal obstacles to become a cross country champion with the help from an unexpected source and a coach who didn't want to coach cross country.
