Fathom Events to pickle the Beast by bringing The Sandlot back to theaters

"Let me tell you something kid; Everybody gets one chance to do something great. Most people never take the chance, either because they're too scared, or they don't recognize it when it spits on their shoes."

- The Great Bambino

Play ball! In the twenty-five years since its initial release, THE SANDLOT has remained a cherished part of pop culture after sliding home and into people's hearts with its adorable cast of characters, endlessly quotable dialogue, and one gigantic English mastiff. As a way to celebrate the film's anniversary, Fathom Events is going to bring THE SANDLOT back to the silver screen in theaters nationwide for two days only: July 22 and 24th. These special presentations of THE SANDLOT will play at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. (local time) on Sunday, July 22, and at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 24.  This home run of an event will be accompanied by an exclusive sneak preview of an all-new Fox Sports documentary about the making of this coming-of-age comedy, which many fans have never been able to see on the big screen.

Tickets for the event can be purchased on June 22nd through FathomEvents.com while available. According to Fathom, the time-honored family film will be screened in hundreds of select movie theaters, so be sure to check the website regularly to find out where you can enjoy the movie.

Told in a charming, rambling fashion, THE SANDLOT is set in the summer of 1962, when Scotty Smalls (Tom Guiry) moves to a new town. Awkward and friendless, Scotty is on the brink of despondency when he runs into the never-ending baseball game that takes place on the sandlot behind a ramshackle house.

He’s befriended first by Benny Rodriguez (Mike Vitar) and ultimately by the whole team, including Hamilton “Ham” Porter (Patrick Renna), Michael “Squints” Palledorous (Chauncey Leopardi), Alan “Yeah-Yeah” McClennan (Marty York), Kenny DeNunez (Brandon Adams), Bertram Weeks (Grant Gelt), and Timmy and Tommy Timmons (Victor DiMattia and Shane Obedzinski). On and off the baseball field, they experience an unforgettable – and unforgettably hilarious – summer of discovery and friendship. “The Sandlot” also stars James Earl JonesKaren Allen and Denis Leary.

“Watching ‘The Sandlot’ has become an annual event that no summer is complete without – but since its original release, it has never had a nationwide theatrical re-release,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “We’re proud to be able to bring ‘The Sandlot’ to families and fans all around the country with this special cinema event, paired with a sneak peek at a brand-new Fox Sports documentary.”

Be sure not to sleep on this opportunity, otherwise you might regret it for-ev-ver!
