The second film in our two-part celebration of the legendary director, Penny Marshall, is one of her most loved movies, A League of Their Own.
Set during World War II, this wildly entertaining comedy-drama is a fictionalised account of the formation of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. Created to keep the world of baseball going while men were away fighting, the women still struggled to receive respect and recognition.
The story follows competitive sisters Dottie (Geena Davis) and Kit (Lori Petty), as they tour around the country with their ragtag team, The Peaches, managed by former baseball star and alcoholic, Jimmy (Tom Hanks).
This film is guaranteed to make you laugh and make you cry.
About Relaxed Screenings
To ensure the environment is safe and comfortable, we leave the lights on a touch and turn the sound down a little. It’s fine to move around and make noise during the film. There are no adverts or trailers; the movie starts precisely at noon. There’s also a chill-out space if you need to take a break in a quiet area during the film. If you want any more information, see our Access Screenings page here.
