Free Movie -- Disney's Million Dollar Arm

We have been offered a free movie! I can't attend due to a scheduling conflict but book club members and guests can attend (please no more than one guest per person). Just sign up here and when you get to the theater, go to the head of the line and tell the Disney representative that you are with the "Baltimore Bookclub Meetup." We have 25 seats reserved. If the event is full, put yourself on the wait list. On the 25th, we may be offered more seats.

Based on a true story, sports agent JB Bernstein (Jon Hamm) finds that business has changed and things aren’t going well for his career. In a last ditch effort to save his livelihood he concocts a scheme to find baseball’s next great pitching ace. Hoping to find a young cricket pitcher he can turn into a major league baseball star, JB travels to India to produce a reality show competition called “The Million Dollar Arm.” With the help of cantankerous but eagle-eyed retired baseball scout Ray Poitevint (Alan Arkin), he discovers Dinesh (played by Madhur Mittal from “Slumdog Millionaire”) and Rinku (played by Suraj Sharma from “Life of Pi”), two 18 year old boys who have no idea about playing baseball, yet have a knack for throwing a fastball. Hoping to sign them to major league contracts and make a quick buck, JB brings the boys home to America to train. While the Americans are definitely out of their element in India — the boys, who have never left their rural villages — are equally challenged when they come to the States. As the boys learn the finer points of baseball — JB, with the help of his charming friend Brenda (Lake Bell) — learns valuable life lessons about teamwork, commitment and what it means to be a family.

    Hey there. Sorry I missed you all. Apple directions were bad and I was 30 min. Late. Parked in the 3rd row from the front... Then got sick from the theater hot dog and spent the last 30 min. In the women's restroom. Needless to say, it wasn't my night. What I saw if the movie was good though. Got tears in eyes quite a few times... Next time maybe I'll have better luck and actually see some of you peeps! Ttyl.

    If you are just getting to the theatre we have the third row from the top reserved for our group. You have to be kinda pushy at the door to get in.

    Can we meet up someone at the movie theater? This my 1st event so I haven't met anyone and wouldn't know who to look for.

      Anyone want to volunteer to be the main contact for new folks? I have to work, so I can't attend. This was really just an "attend on your own" event. Whenever we are offered movie tickets, I always list the event, even if I can't attend.
