The Healing Place, HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital’s grief support and holistic healing center, will present the last in its series of free movies with thought-provoking messages on Thursday morning, Sept. 21.
The community is invited to join the staff from The Healing Place at the Micon Downtown Cinema, 315 S. Barstow St., for the 11 a.m. screening of the 2010 film “The Way.” The film stars Martin Sheen as an American ophthalmologist who goes to France to retrieve the body of his adult son, killed in the Pyrenees during a storm while walking a Catholic pilgrimage route. Once there, in a combination of homage to his son and grief, the doctor decides to walk the ancient spiritual trail himself and, in the course of his journey, meets others from around the world who are looking for greater meaning in their lives.
Movies shown earlier in the three-month series were “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner,” a classic 1968 movie on black-white relationships and marriage; and “Hidden Figures,” a 2016 release about the little-known contributions of three African-American women to the American space program.
No advance registration for the movies is required. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. There will be a nominal fee for optional refreshments.
HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital is sponsored by Hospital Sisters Ministries.
