Summer Cinema: Bull Durham

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 Bull Durham (USA, 1988, 108 minutes) What happens when an unschooled pitching “phenom,” his reluctant mentor, and a sultry and sage baseball groupie cross paths over the course of a minor league season? A movie classic that, one film critic said, “works equally as a love story, a baseball fable, and a comedy, while ignoring the clichés of each genre.” By turns funny and serious, philosophical and down-to-earth, Bull Durham proves that loving baseball is a metaphor for loving life. Sports Illustrated ranked it the #1 Greatest Sports Movie of all time. Starring Kevin Costner, Tim Robbins, and Susan Sarandon. With welcoming remarks from longtime film critic for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Carrie Rickey, fun baseball-themed giveaways, and more!
