About This MovieToggle

The dog days of summer are broiling along. All over the valley, kids are coming into their own in some neighborhood adventure that will bring them that much closer to independence. We’ve all had those summers. It’s a rite of passage.

A dorky kid named Scotty Smalls had one such summer. Join us in reliving his somewhat awkward coming of age by watching The Sandlot on August 17 at the Colonial Theater!

You’ve never seen The Sandlot? You’re killing me, Smalls! Here’s the scoop:

Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom and stepdad, and wants to learn to play baseball. The neighborhood baseball guru Rodriquez takes Smalls under his wing, and soon he’s part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, treehouse sleep-ins, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival ball team, and the travelling fair. Beyond the fence at the back of the sandlot menaces a legendary ball-eating dog called The Beast, and the kids inevitably must deal with him. —From IMDB
