Electric documentary on the New York Cosmos screens at Pollard Library!

Once in a Lifetime: The Extraordinary Story
of the New York Cosmos (2006)

Friday, July 16  @ 1PM
Pollard Memorial Library
401 Merrimack Street, Lowell

Free admission!

It’s July 12 — one day after the 2010 World Cup has come to a close. Still aching for that football frenzy that brought the world together?

Then join us at Lowell’s Pollard Memorial Library on July 16 for a Friday afternoon matinee of one of the most dynamic sports films out there. The fabulous archival footage, outrageous crowd scenes, and commentator zingers will make their mark on you for sure, whether you’re a football fan or not. The New York Cosmos were the cool boys of football. They had spirit. World appeal. And of course: PELÉ!

We couldn’t be more proud to join forces with The City of Lowell, Pollard Memorial Library and ONE Lowell for citywide summertime programming in commemoration of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Appropriately named “Playing for Peace,” these family-friendly events aim to bring the exciting world of football (soccer to most Americans) to the Lowell community, culminating in August’s ONE Lowell World Cup right here in the Mill City.

We hope you’ll share this event news with the soccer fans in YOUR life and join us for this free July film event!
