A League of Their Own

“There’s no crying in baseball!”

Join us at the Rio Theatre on Wednesday, August 16 for a baseball doubleheader featuring two summertime classics, A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN and BULL DURHAM. See one, or see ’em both!

Director Penny Marshall‘s landmark comedy-drama A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN follows a group of rag-tag female baseball players who, as a result of America’s stock of athletic young men being depleted during World War II, participate in a professional league. The story focuses on the relationship ups and downs between competitive sisters Dottie (Geena Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty) as hit the road to play ball in towns across the USA surrounded by a cast of characters including their grumpy has-been coach Jimmy Dugan (Tom Hanks) and teammates (including Madonna and Rosie O’Donnell).

As the team’s season begins, Annie selects brash new recruit Ebby Calvin Laloosh, whom she christens “Nuke,” to inspire with the religion of baseball. Nuke also receives guidance from veteran player Crash Davis, who settles Nuke’s erratic pitching and teaches him to follow the catcher’s lead.



Be careful what you wish for… Director Penny Marshall’s (LAVERNE AND SHIRLEY) sweet and hilarous comedy BIG is one of the most beloved coming-of-age films of the 1980s, and helped to catapult Tom Hanks into a whole other level of fame thanks to his phenomenol Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning performance as a kid trapped in… Continue Reading
