We've been hearing a lot of the movie The Field of Dreams lately with the recent Major League Baseball game being played in Dyersville last week. But another classic baseball movie is The Sandlot. If you haven't seen the movie in a long time and don't want to try and buy it or search forever on a streaming platform, the Quad Cities River Bandits in partnership with Alternating Currents is showing the movie at Modern Woodmen Park.

The showing of The Sandlot will happen at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, August 19. Gates for the movie will open up at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free for everyone. All seats are general admission, aka first come first serve. The weather on Thursday evening is supposed to be perfect. By the time the movie starts, the sun should be about 25 minutes away from setting, 85°, and a couple of clouds in the sky.

While it is free to get into Modern Woodmen Park to watch The Sandlot for free, the Quad Cities River Bandits say that there is no outside food or beverage allowed. Concessions will be available in case you want something to eat and drink while watching The Sandlot.

LOOK: Here are the best lake towns to live in

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
