Movie Night – Let’s Have A Ball!


Movie Night… 31


For some, movie night means nothing more than getting a bowl of popcorn and watching the latest release. Others dabble with the double-feature, but that’s often no more than an act of compromise. The serious movie watcher might watch three movies on movie night. Then there are people like me.

Nothing short of four movies or programs will do. Anything less simply isn’t a proper experience. If you’re like me, then try these special suggestions. We think you’ll be pleased.


Tonight’s theme: Baseballs movies that aren’t really about baseball.

First Movie – The Natural (1984)

Second Movie – A League of Their Own (1992)

Third Movie – Bull Durham (1988)

Fourth Movie – Field of Dreams (1989)
