The State Theatre, M&T Bank and The Ithaca times continue The Classic Movie Series with Hockey Favorite 'MIRACLE' on Sunday, January 14th at 4pm.

The inspiring story of the team that transcended its sport and united a nation with a new feeling of hope. Based on the true story of one of the greatest moments in sports history, the tale captures a time and place where differences could be settled by games and a cold war could be put on ice. In 1980, the United States Ice Hockey team's coach, Herb Brooks, took a ragtag squad of college kids up against the legendary juggernaut from the Soviet Union at the Olympic Games.

Despite the long odds, Team USA carried the pride of a nation yearning from a distraction from world events. With the world watching the team rose to the occasion, prompting broadcaster Al Michaels' now famous question, to the millions viewing at home: "Do you believe in a miracle? Yes!"

This event is part of the M&T Bank /Ithaca Times Classic Movie series and is sponsored by The William Henry Miller Inn, Jason K Demarest Architecture DPC and Cornell Business & Technology Park.
