This baseball season, Nitehawk Cinema and BK Hot Dog Company play ball with our MAJOR LEAGUE FILM FEAST!
A former exotic dancer decides to move towards warmer climates after inheriting the Cleveland Indians when her old, rich husband passes away on their honeymoon. The only problem is that her lease won’t let her out unless there’s poor attendance to the baseball games so she concocts a brilliant plan to make the already losing team even worse so that she can move to Miami. But of course her plan turns sour when the supposed losers she brought on start on a winning streak! Major League is a good misfit-to-glory baseball story with a whole lot laughed along the way. When these three oddballs try to play hardball, the result is totally screwball!
As always with our Film Feasts, each dish will be served at the moment its inspirational scene comes on the screen!
