Blue and gold will descend on Brenden Theatres at Palms Casino Resort, where stars from the blockbuster film, Rudy, will come together to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release, Thursday, Oct. 17th. Celebrity guests will include the film's star Sean Astin, writer Angelo Pizzo, and the legendary inspiration behind the blockbuster film, Rudy Ruettiger.
