Some Macon residents treated to early ‘42’ screening

April 10, 2013 

Warner Bros., the studio that made the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” held a special screening at the AmStar 16 theater Wednesday night for local officials and people who were involved with the movie. The film depicts the life of Robinson during 1946 and 1947. He broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier in 1947 as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Several segments of “42” were shot in different parts of Macon last June, with hundreds of locals working as part of the production. The movie, which stars Chadwick Boseman, Harrison Ford and Christopher Meloni, opens nationwide Friday.
