Pink Night at the Movies

Brodstone Memorial Hospital and the Crest Theatre are teaming up to bring “Decoding Annie Parker” to Superior on Wednesday, October 15. The theatre will open at 6:30 pm and the movie begins at 7:30 pm. Advance ticket purchases are encouraged. The $10 ticket includes a drink and popcorn and may be purchased at the Crest or the hospital business office. Brodstone is encouraging movie goers to “Put your pink on” and attend this event. Goodie bags, door prizes and t-shirts will be given to the first 100 in attendance. “Decoding Annie Parker” is the life affirming, heartfelt and true story of Anne Parker, young woman who watches her mother, then sister, fall victim to breast cancer. When she herself is diagnosed with the disease, she is resolved to fight back against immeasurable odds. Helen Hunt depicts the geneticist, Mary-Claire King. She’s steadfast, calm, and set in her mission to find the genetic roots of breast cancer. Finding patterns of variants in DNA among families of people with breast cancer, most of whom lacked the BRCA mutation, was a daunting task. In her office King keeps an analog clock marked at 12 minute intervals. “That’s how often a woman will die of breast cancer in this country,” she explains to visitors. Most doctors and other scientists deny her (then) theory.
