Sports Illustrated has named “Bull Durham” the greatest sports movie of all time. Starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon, the Ron Shelton-directed film follows an aging minor league ball player, brought up from another team to mature a young pitcher. Both find themselves romantically involved with Ann, a baseball groupie. “Bull Durham” is rated R for strong sexuality, nudity, and pervasive language, and has a runtime of 108 minutes.

 

The Flying Dog Film Series is sponsored by Flying Dog Brewery. This presentation of “Bull Durham” is sponsored by the Frederick Keys. A complete listing of artists and performers scheduled for the 2016-2017 season can be found at WeinbergCenter.org.
