Dinner + Movie on the Lawn

See the story behind the historic All-American Girls’ Professional Baseball League.

On Friday, July 8 at 7:30 PM, bring a chair or blanket and your family and friends and join us on the Lawrence Library Lawn for dinner and twice-nominated Golden Globe film, A League of Their Own.

Local food and drink vendors will be on site for your dining and drinking needs, or grab dinner at your favorite Downtown spot beforehand and then head over for the movie. Bring a picnic if you like. Free popcorn and door prizes from some of your favorite Downtown businesses. Family friendly and lots of fun, but please leave your pets at home. Presented by Downtown Lawrence, Inc. and the Lawrence Public Library.
