Movies in the Wild: The Sandlot

August 8 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm

On four Thursdays in August, we’re showing you a good time and a good flick! Make the end of summer a lot cooler with our outdoor cinema series, presented in collaboration with Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Pack a blanket or enjoy the soft grass of the Family Garden Play Lawn and watch fun feature films under the open sky at dusk.

Movie included with regular admission.

FREE for members
Join today and get free daily admission plus special events: Tuesday Twilights, Movies in the Wild and Fortlandia!

Some food is available for purchase and The North Door will be present with a full bar.
Guests are welcome to bring a picnic, but no outside alcohol is permitted.

The Sandlot is a summer favorite just perfect for watching on our big green lawn. We’re ready to knock it out of the park with our second Movies in the Wild for the season!

Film begins at sundown. Runtime: 1 hour, 41 min

Full 2019 Movies in the Wild Schedule

August 1: Some Like It Hot (Not Rated)

Two male musicians witness witness a mob hit and hit the road in disguise as part of an all-lady trio with our girl Marilyn. Jazzy, steamy, funny and very, very bombshell. Get settled in early for a preshow jazz trio (in the flesh).

August 8: The Sandlot (PG)

This silly, adventurous coming-of-age movie from the '90s tells the tale of the new kid in town finding friendship, fun and inspiration on a dusty baseball diamond. Is it time to get nostalgic with buds or introduce this childhood fave to your own kiddos?

August 15: The 'Burbs (PG)

The end of summer is a great time for a staycation ... but are you sure those new neighbors aren't, um, part of a cannibalistic cult? Alamo Drafthouse calls this film "one of the most hilarious horror comedies of the 1980s."

August 22: Clueless (PG-13)

Hollywood dropped "Emma" into mid-1990s Beverly Hills with Alicia Silverstone, Brittany Murphy and Stacey Dash wearing plaid + knee socks and Jeep cruising in a way that, like, totally changed the world. Think you've got better plans than rolling with your homies to this final Movies in the Wild of the season? As if.
