Newtown Theatre screens Major League

“Major League” returns to the big screen at the historic Newtown Theatre, 120 N. State St., Newtown, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 29.

The night will feature a roving ballpark vendor offering peanuts, popcorn and beer for purchase. Admission is $10 for everyone and $5 for theater members.

Released 30 years ago this year, the baseball-themed comedy follows the exploits of a ragtag Cleveland Indians team that is filled with the most incompetent players the owner can find, including near-blind pitcher Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn (Charlie Sheen) and injury-prone catcher Jake Taylor (Tom Berenger).

The owner’s goal is to lose as many games as possible so she can break her lease with Cleveland and move the team to Miami. Her villainous tactics accidentally foster a can-do team spirit, turning the Indians into potential winners.
