Point Fish Fry and a Flick: Major League
Tonight @ Discovery World, 5 p.m.
Though the hit 1989 Charlie Sheen baseball comedy Major League followed a fictionalized version of the Cleveland Indians, there's a reason it remains a local favorite. Most of the film was actually shot in Milwaukee at the old County Stadium. Sharp eyes will even notice a WTMJ logo on the stadium's scoreboard and a couple of local landmarks, including the Safe House and Major Goolsby's. Also on loan from Milwaukee: Brewers announcer Bob Uecker, who steals the show as the Indians' boozing sportscaster. The film screens outdoors for free tonight at dusk, following a Bartolotta fish fry that begins at 5 p.m.
