Baseball double header on 35mm film

The Union County Performing Arts Center in Rahway will present two classic movies on 35mm film next Sunday, April 14.

See A League of Their Own and The Natural while enjoying free popcorn and enjoy a musical performance on the theater’s historic “Biggest Little Wurlitzer” organ beginning at 4:00 pm for the matinee.

UCPAC hits a baseball double-feature on Sunday, April 14 with
A League of Their Own and The Natural!

At 2:00 pm, A League of Their Own steps up to bat. This fictional account of the real All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, founded when the WWII draft led to a scarcity of male players, boasts an all-star cast including Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell, and more.

Next up at 5pm is The Natural starring Robert Redford as baseball player Roy Hobbs, whose skills get him a tryout with the Cubs at age 19.

However, an attack leaves Hobbs with a gunshot wound, completely derailing his dream. Hobbs signs with the NY Knights, the last place team, at age 35, and must now prove through age and injury that he can still become the “best there ever was.”

Later this year, UCPAC presents Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on May 10; and National Lampoon’s Vacation on June 28.

The Union County Performing Arts Center is located at 1601 Irving Street in Rahway, NJ. General admission tickets, starting at $5.00 for one movie and $10.00 for a double-feature, can be purchased online, in person at the Box Office, or by calling 732.499.8226.

The Box Office can be reached via email at
