The Play

Saturday 9/12 - 2:00 pm - Cinépolis La Costa - Q&A


On November 20th, 1982, the greatest play in the history of American football – dubbed ‘The Play’- unraveled in front of 80,000 stunned fans in Berkeley’s Memorial Stadium. To this day the details, nuances, legality, and glory of this fabulous and bizarre moment are hotly debated and roundly celebrated by the alumni of Stanford and Cal Berkeley as well as by football fans around the world. Every American football fan worth their salt knows ‘The Play’ but almost no one knows the real story: how this memorable play can trace its roots, in part, to the Kennedy assassination – or how the second greatest play in collegiate football that year happened seconds before The Play and was executed by one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time – or how after The Play a group of embittered Stanford students pulled one of the greatest collegiate pranks of all time. Lives and the trajectories of careers were changed forever as football fans received one of the sweetest pieces of candy to ever emerge from out sporting culture’s gift bag.
