Pit Spitters To Host Outdoor Movie Series

By Beth Milligan | Sept. 13, 2020

With the Traverse City Pit Spitters baseball season over, the franchise will turn its Turtle Creek Stadium into an outdoor movie venue this fall.

The “Films on the Field” series will begin on Thursday, September 17. A limited number of tickets will be sold to meet social distancing guidelines. Moviegoers will purchase a seating area for $50 in advance, which will allow them to host up to six people within a 12’ x 12’ area on the field. Seating for each group will be a defined area where people will have room to distance while enjoying the movie. The current movie lineup includes:

Thursday, Sept. 17 – The Sandlot
Friday, Sept. 18 – Trolls World Tour
Saturday, Sept. 19 – Lion King (2019)

All movies start at 8pm, with gates opening at 7:30pm. Concessions will be available for purchase. Tickets are on sale online here. Additional movies will be added to the schedule in the coming weeks.

“This is the kind of family fun we want to bring to Northern Michigan,” says Traverse City Pit Spitters General Manager Mickey Graham. “We have a venue where people can safely come together as a community. We are coming off playing close to 50 games this summer, and our organization has developed and implemented social distancing guidelines that can carry over to these kind of events.”
