“Star Wars,” “Twilight,” and “Harry Potter” screen outdoors at Lowell’s LeLacheur Park!

For those not in the know, Lowell has a mighty cool baseball field called Edward LeLacheur Park (locally known as “LeLacheur Park”) that is home to the Lowell Spinners, the official Class A affiliate team to the Boston Red Sox since 1996. All Spinners players are drafted and/or signed by the Boston Red Sox with some even making their way to the pro-team. For Sox fans, the Spinners offer “the taste of the game” right here in Lowell, and for a millionth of the cost. With ticket prices maxing out at about $10, seeing the Spinners on a hot summer night is one of the most cost-efficient and flat-out fun things a family can do. We’re big fans as well, and are long overdue for a good game.

The LFC got a great tip a few weeks ago courtesy of our good friend (and stellar photographer) Anne Ruthmann: outdoor summer movies at LeLacheur Park are on the way! The events are courtesy of “Spinnertainment,” the cool pre- and post-game activities that take place on the field at any given game. In the next two months, the Park will bring outdoor film to its “jumbo-tron” screen — officially the Pepsi Video Board — for folks to enjoy once the game is over. There are THREE films on the way on select Saturday nights after the baseball games, so snag those highly affordable tickets and mark your calendars for the following:
