Louisville – It’s All Star week for Major League Baseball and July’s Free Summer Movie is one that any baseball fan will love. “Moneyball” is this weekend’s free featured film at the Iroquois Amphitheater.
“We have a great film for the whole family and now that the heat has broken it will be a fabulous weekend to get out and enjoy a summer evening,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15).
The 2011 film stars Brad Pitt and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the story of the 2002 Oakland Athletics and how the team took a different approach to winning and broke an American League winning streak record.
The film begins at 8:30pm and is free to the public thanks to funding by several members of the Louisville Metro Council.
Joining Butler as sponsors this year are Dan Johnson (D-21), ), Rick Blackwell (D-12), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13), Mary C. Woolridge (D-3), David James (D-6), Jim King (D-10), Bob Henderson (D-14), Kelly Downard (R-16), Jon Ackerson (R-18) Robin Engel (R-22), David Yates (D-25) and Brent Ackerson (D-26).
“This is turning out to be a great year for the Amphitheater and Iroquois Park,” says Butler. “The community has given us a very positive response to this program and other events that are ongoing here.”
