"Trouble With the Curve" Comes to Ludlow Auditorium September 6

Click HERE for preview

 

FOLA's September movie will be Clint Eastwoods baseball movie, "Trouble with the Curve", at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium on Saturday, September 6 at 7 pm.

 

Trouble with the Curve is a 2012 sports-drama film directed by Robert Lorenz and starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, Matthew Lillard, and John Goodman. The film revolves around an aging baseball scout whose daughter joins him on a scouting trip. The movie was released on September 21, 2012.

This was Eastwood's first acting project since 2008's Gran Torino and his first acting role in a film he did not direct since his cameo in 1995's Casper.

An aging Atlanta Braves baseball scout, Gus Lobel (Eastwood), is given one last assignment to prove his value to the organization, who views him as unable to adapt to changes within the game. His boss and friend Pete (Goodman) does not want to see him let go, but is fighting off the advances of an ambitious younger protégé, Philip (Lillard), who is gunning to get Gus fired and take Pete's job.

Pete suspects Gus is hiding problems with his health, so against Gus's wishes, Pete contacts Gus's estranged daughter Mickey (Adams), a workaholic lawyer pursuing a partnership at her firm, to join her father on a scouting trip to North Carolina. Gus is to review a top prospect named Bo Gentry, a brash amateur whose statistics make him a likely top draft pick.

The movie is open to everyone and is free; donations are appreciated. Popcorn will be provided courtesy of Berkshire Bank and water courtesy of FOLA. For more information, www.fola.us and 802-228-7239.

 

     

Thanks for Helping FOLA Raise Funds to "Re-Seat" the Auditorium!

FOLA's has succeeded in its "reseating" project, thanks to your help!

 

Now people can enjoy the comfort of new, wider, more comfortable chairs in the auditorium.

 

Your help was essential in making this happen.

Now FOLA needs to concentrate on improved audio equipment to make your experience in viewing the many functions that take place in the auditorium more pleasant and rewarding to you.

Your continued help in this effort is imperative.
