“We are excited to have another opportunity to bring affordable, family fun to Canal Park, even while the team is on a road trip.

Tickets are $5 and will benefit the Summa Health Foundation. Children ages 3 and under enter for free. Gates will open at 5 p.m., and families will have the opportunity to play and relax in the outfield grass of Canal Park before the film is screened on the 26’ x 68’ HD video board, one of the largest in Minor League Baseball. No outside food or beverages are permitted in the ballpark.

The RubberDucks will host its second Movie Night at Canal Park on Sat., Aug. 4, with the film yet to be announced, which will benefit the American Cancer Society.
