[ARCHIVED] Free Movie in Bauerstown Field "Sandlot"

Free Movie at Bauerstown Field "Sandlot" Rated PG

Friday, June 14 at Dusk
152 Koehler Street

Shaler Township will be holding a Free Movie at Bauerstown Field featuring “Sandlot” on Friday, June 14 starting at Dusk.  Movie is 1 hour 41 minutes long.  Bring your blanket or chair.   Sponsored by Wesbanco.  

This is a free family event for all ages  Parents need to know that The Sandlot is a lighthearted baseball comedy that tweens will love. Set during the early 1960s, it follows a new kid in town who makes friends by joining a local pick-up team. The main threat to the gang's happiness is The Beast -- a giant, slavering dog on the other side of the sandlot fence (he might briefly scare younger viewers). Strong language includes "s--t," "a--hole," and lots of colorful insults, and there are some scuffles between the boys. Adults may raise an eyebrow at the way the movie treats Wendy, the much sought-after, slightly older lifeguard "babe." The boys ogle her with typical preteen interest (and one tricks her into kissing him), but it's the camera that unnecessarily lingers on her various body parts. Family relationships are also somewhat strained (particularly between one of the boys and his indifferent stepdad), but friendship plays a strong role and comes off in a very positive light. And overall, the movie has a sun-kissed, nostalgic tone that both kids and parents will appreciate.
