This partly real and partly scripted film documents what many consider to be the golden age of bodybuilding that occurred in the 1970s. It depicts two major competitions: Mr. Universe, which is for amateur participants, and Mr. Olympia, which is for pros. In the former, Mike Katz and Ken Waller are profiled, while in the latter, the chief contenders are Lou Ferrigno, Franco Columbu and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is hoping to take home a sixth win.

Join us every second and fourth Sunday of the month for an afternoon documentary film screening. Invite a friend and we'll take care of the rest (popcorn and drinks). Watch some of the most influential films and prepare to be inspired
