A League of Their Own (1992)
Based on the true story of a mid-WW2 all-women’s baseball league (and directed with a deft and sensitive hand by the late, great Penny Marshall), this film’s charm and star power is undeniable. Geena Davis, Lori Petty, Rose O’Donnell and Tom Hanks will make you laugh and cry, no matter what year it is or whether you’ve ever swung a bat in your life.
3pm to 5:15pm
Tampa Theatre

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus
This Off-Broadway hit is a one-man fusion of theater and stand-up, a light-hearted theatrical comedy based on The New York Times No. 1 best-selling book of the last decade by John Gray. Moving swiftly through a series of vignettes, the show covers everything from dating and marriage to the bedroom. This show will have couples elbowing each other all evening as they recognize themselves on stage. Sexy and fast-paced, this hysterical show is definitely for adults but will leave audiences laughing and giggling like little kids.
Begins 2pm
