Classic Baseball Movies on Deck at Penn in April
'Pride of the Yankees,' 'Field of Dreams,' 'Bull Durham' and 'For Love of the Game' planned at historic movie theater.
Spring is almost here — the weather already is here — and soon Tigers fans will hope to see Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera cause nightmares for opposing pitchers.
At the Penn Theatre, a historic, nonprofit movie house in downtown Plymouth, America's Pasttime will hit the silver screen each Thursday in April, where the theater will screen Pride of the Yankees, starring Gary Cooper, and Field of Dreams, Bull Durham and For Love of the Game, each starring Kevin Costner.
