‘The Sandlot’ Back in Theaters for 25th Anniversary
"You're killing me, Smalls!" That one line defined a generation.
Believe it or not, The Sandlot is turning 25 and to celebrate, the movie is going to be back in theaters!
On July 22 and 24th in select theaters you can see Benny 'The Jet' Rodriguez outrun The Beast on the big screen.
Here in Sioux Falls, there are only two showings on the 22nd. Century East at Dawley Farms is showing The Sandlot at 1 PM and again at 4 PM. You can get tickets here.
Is it weird if I go to both?
Also, I feel like I need to warn the entire Sioux Empire, if you are in the movie theatre with me during The Sandlot, I most likely will recite every line. Ok, maybe not every line, but most of them. It's a weird impulse. It's like muscle memory, I can't help myself. #SorryNotSorry
Obviously, The Sandlot has a ton of memorable moments. The barfing on the carnival ride, the vacuums exploding, Ham teaching Smalls about s'mores, Squints kissing Wendy Peffercorn, but my favorite moment is the night game. 4th of July is the only night game because they can use the lights from the fireworks to play ball. Not much baseball happens because they are all awestruck by the fireworks while Ray Charles croons "America The Beautiful." I love that scene so much!
So strap on your P.F. Flyers and head out to Dawley Farms, it's time to play ball!
