On Friday, Oct. 13 (Friday the 13th), the whole family can watch a movie about some GOOD LUCK - against all odds - at the showing of "Secretariat." 
Based on the novel by William Nack, the movie is about the journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner, who made it to the top against all odds. Housewife Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) takes over Meadow Stables for her ailing father - despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge. With the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich), Chenery helps guide Secretariat into winning the first Triple Crown in 25 years (Rated PG).
