Eat|See|Hear Outdoor Movie: A League Of Their Own
September 15 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
“Because there’s no crying in baseball. THERE’S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL! No crying!”
During World War II when all the men are fighting the war, most of the jobs that were left vacant because of their absence were filled in by women. The owners of the baseball teams, not wanting baseball to be dormant indefinitely, decide to form teams with women. So scouts are sent all over the country to find women players. One of the scouts, passes through Oregon and finds a woman named Dottie Hinson, who is incredible. He approaches her and asks her to try out but she’s not interested. However, her sister, Kit who wants to get out of Oregon, offers to go. But he agrees only if she can get her sister to go. When they try out, they’re chosen and are on the same team. Jimmy Dugan, a former player, who’s now a drunk, is the team manager. But he doesn’t feel as if it’s a real job so he drinks and is not exactly doing his job. So Dottie steps up. After a few months when it appears the girls are not garnering any attention, the league is facing closure till Dottie does something that grabs attention. And it isn’t long Dottie is the star of the team and Kit feels like she’s living in her shadow.

MUSICAL GUEST: Beat Mosaic
Beat Mosaic is an irresistibly sassy soul band from Los Angeles, California. Anchored in a classic funk sound that evokes comparisons to the Meters and the MGs, this 7 person outfit broadcasts a sound with attitude in the extreme. Showcasing gritty vocals and biting horns, roaring organ and purring Wurlitzer, Beat Mosaic weaves tapestry of funk, soul, and afro-beat that is by turns laid-back and uproarious, equal parts Budos Band and Curtis Mayfield, Jimi Hendrix and Bill Withers. They defy you not to dance. Living in that golden zone where tasty song-writing meets expert funksmanship, Beat Mosiac is a soul band that throws its weight around on the dance floor.
