Wednesday, July 9, 2014 at 7:00 pm
Join us throughout baseball season for a cinema series filled with baseball classics, documentaries, and family films that examine, commemorate, and celebrate America’s love of the game.
About The Natural (USA, 1984, 134 minutes)
Roy Hobbs has always known what he wants to be: a baseball star. With his homemade bat Wonderboy at his side, he longs to escape the humdrum farm life he’s always known. Then a tragic night crushes his dream in one fell swoop. Years later, the now-old rookie emerges in the shadow of doubt. Will Roy finally be able to achieve his destiny? Based on the classic novel by Bernard Malamud, Robert Redford shines alongside Glenn Close, Robert Duvall, and Barbara Hershey.
With remarks from longtime film critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Carrie Rickey, fun baseball-themed giveaways, and more!
