In celebration of Women’s History Month, you are invited to watch the movie A League of Their Own, an astounding true story, on our large screen with surround sound! This movie is based on the Women’s Professional Baseball League of the 1940s and 50s. Bottled water will be provided at this movie showing, and you are welcome to bring your own lunch or snacks to enjoy while watching.
A League of Their Own movie summary: “Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, and Madonna star in this major-league comedy from the team that brought you Big. Hanks stars as Jimmy Dugan, a washed-up ballplayer whose big league days are over. Hired to coach in the All-American Girls Baseball League of 1943, while the male pros are at war, Dugan finds himself drawn back into the game by the heart and heroics of his all-girl team. Jon Lovitz adds a scene-stealing cameo as the sarcastic scout who recruits Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis), the baseball dolly with a Babe Ruth swing. Teammates Madonna, Lori Petty and Rosie O’Donnell round out the roster, taking the team to the World Series. Based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed the trail, on the fields and off, for generations of athletes.” (excerpted from Amazon)
