The newportFILM Summer Series continues this Thursday night at First Beach in Newport with a drive-in movie.
“The Battered Bastards of Baseball” will be shown on a 40 foot blow up screen. The family friendly film is a true story about the only independent minor league baseball team in America, the Portland Mavericks.
The gates to the parking lot will open at 6 p.m., and at 8 p.m. Chapman Way, one of the film’s directors, will introduce the film. There will be a seating area up front if you would like to ride your bike. Bike Newport will also provide a free bike valet.
