Marshall County Judge Dean Colvin is the community sponsor for this week’s Sunday matinee at the REES. The Sandlot will be shown at The REES Theatre in Plymouth on April 30 at 2:00 p.m.
Set in the summer of 1962, Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley. While he is content to stay in his room, his mom and stepfather push him to make new friends.
Scotty tries to join a group of boys who play baseball daily at the neighborhood sandlot, but all of them are scornful of Smalls’ inability to catch and throw the ball. All except Benny Rodriguez, the neighborhood baseball guru who takes him under his wing. Soon, Scotty becomes part of the local baseball buddies.
The team falls into summer adventures involving baseball, treehouse sleepovers, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, a snooty rival Little League team, and the traveling fair.
They also encounter “The Beast”, a legendary ball-eating dog that lives in a yard behind the fence at the back of the sandlot.
This movie is rated PG. Adults are $5.00, and children 12 and under are free and must be accompanied by a paid adult.
Tickets are available at Fernbaugh’s in Plymouth, or online at www.reestheatre.com. The Box Office opens at 1:15 pm.
