Ten years ago, Rhode Island comedy kings the Farrelly Brothers released Fever Pitch, a film about love and the Red Sox starring Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore.
Originally a remake of a British movie starring Clive Owen (which is currently available for stream on Netflix) and based off of a book by Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch went through a last-minute change upon filming, when the Red Sox ended up winning the 2004 World Series. While the movie continues to get mixed reviews among Red Sox Nation, it has a certain place in the history, and will now be screened at Fenway as part of the park’s “Movie Night at Fenway’’ series.
On Thursday, August 27 at 8 p.m., the movie will play on a Mitsubishi hi-def screen in center field. Gates will open for the event at 6:45 p.m. and fans will have the opportunity to take photos in front of the Green Monster or the Red Sox dugout until 7:30 p.m.. Concessions will be available to attendees.
General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under (free for children 2 and under). Season ticket holders can attend the event for free. For tickets and more information, visit the “Movie Night at Fenway’’ website.
