Goodwill Central Coast sponsors two screenings of the 1993 coming-of-age comedy ‘The Sandlot’ on Aug, 1, 2020 at the Fairgrounds in Monterey

Goodwill Central Coast presents 'The Sandlot'Goodwill Central Coast is sponsoring two screenings of the 1993 baseball comedy “The Sandlot” on Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, as part of the Monterey County Fair & Event Center‘s popular Drive-In Movie Night.

There will be two showings of the film, which has become a cult classic, a matinee at 4 PM and the evening show at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $30 per car and gates open one hour before showtime.

The film revolves around Scotty, a dorky fifth-grader who’s new in town, who starts hanging out with a group of baseball-playing neighborhood kids — even though he can barely chuck a ball. The film follows their adventures throughout the summer of 1962, including a showdown with the fearsome “Beast” that lives over the left-field fence.

The Drive-In Movie Night is held every Friday and Saturday night through October, at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center (2004 Fairground Road), and includes walk-up concession and bar stands.

Tickets are on sale here. Attendance is limited to 75 cars per performance.

For patrons’ convenience, a walk-up concession stand is located at the back of the arena for moviegoers only. Arena bar concessions are also available for evening shows only. Don’t forget your mask!

Walk-up concession snacks include lemonade, pickles, cotton candy, popcorn, corn dogs, nachos, funnel cakes, apples and candy. The walk-up arena bar features El Jefe Tequila margarita pitchers, red and white wine, Blue Marble canned cocktails, and Sierra Nevada beer in cans.
