Free summer movies continue at Iroquois Amphitheater

“Moneyball” is this weekend’s free featured film at the Iroquois Amphitheater.

“We have a great film for the whole family and now that the heat has broken it will be a fabulous weekend to get out and enjoy a summer evening,” says Councilwoman Marianne Butler (D-15).

The 2011 film stars Brad Pitt and Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the story of the 2002 Oakland Athletics and how the team took a different approach to winning and broke an American League winning streak record.

The film begins at 8:30pm and is free to the public thanks to funding by several members of the Louisville Metro Council. Joining Butler as sponsors this year are Dan Johnson (D-21), Rick Blackwell (D-12), Vicki Aubrey Welch (D-13), Mary C. Woolridge (D-3), David James (D-6), Jim King (D-10), Bob Henderson (D-14), Kelly Downard (R-16), Jon Ackerson (R-18) Robin Engel (R-22), David Yates (D-25) and Brent Ackerson (D-26).

“This is turning out to be a great year for the Amphitheater and Iroquois Park,” says Butler. “The community has given us a very positive response to this program and other events that are ongoing here.”
