AARP Eye Center
Grab a seat on the bleachers or bring a blanket for a screening of the movie The Sandlot at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, at CHS Field in St. Paul, home of the St. Paul Saints baseball team.
The free screening of the 1993 coming-of-age baseball movie is a great way for families and people of all ages to spend a summer evening. You can explore the park, stroll along the field, sit on a blanket in the outfield or watch from the stands.
Set in 1962, The Sandlot chronicles the adventures of a shy, awkward new kid in town after he is taken under the wing of a local baseball star and his team.
The film, which features scenes of the boys confronting a notorious ball-eating dog, stars Tom Guiry, Mike Vitar, Patrick Renna and James Earl Jones.
This is the biggest event of the year for AARP in the Twin Cities. Last year’s movie night drew 2,000 people to CHS Field.
Gates open at 6 p.m. Concessions will be available for purchase; no outside food or chairs are allowed. AARP staff will be on hand to discuss the organization’s work in the Twin Cities area.
CHS Field is located off Interstate 94 and Highway 52 at 360 Broadway St., St. Paul. Registration is required at aarp.org/twin cities or by calling 877-926-8300 toll-free. —Mary Van Beusekom
