This screening will take place outdoors on “Hippie Hill” at Himmel Park, 1000 N. Tucson Boulevard. Please bring your own seating.

Celebrate the career of the late filmmaker Penny Marshall at this special outdoor screening of the 1992 comedy, A League of their Own, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna! And remember, there’s no crying in baseball!

Director Penny Marshall hit a box-office home run with this hilarious and beloved comedy about the All-American Girls’ Professional Baseball League, starring Tom Hanks, Geena Davis and Madonna! With baseball lineups and locker rooms left empty during World War II, the newly-founded All-American Girls Baseball League brought talented women to the big leagues—and brought fans to the stands. It’s 1943, and a candy-bar tycoon enlists agents to scour the country to find women who can play ball. In the backwoods of Oregon, two sisters – Dottie (Genna Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty) – are discovered. Dottie can hit and catch, and Kit can throw a mean fastball. The sisters go to Chicago to try out for the team with other prospects including their soon-to-be-teammates Mae Mordabito (Madonna), Doris Murphy (Rosie O’Donnell), and Marla Hooch (Megan Cavenagh). Unfortunately, the new team’s coach, Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) – a former home-run champion and current broken down has-been – doesn’t think the women have what it takes. After some rocky times, the rag tag group of players ends up winning over their cynical coach and battling their way to the World Series! This fun underdog sports comedy is based on the true story of the pioneering women who blazed a trail for generations of athletes.
