If you screen it, they will come. Great American Ball Park is hosting a movie night featuring Field of Dreams, the 1989 Oscar-nominated sports fantasy starring Kevin Costner as an Iowa corn farmer who has myriad aural and visual hallucinations about ripping out a portion of his field to build a baseball diamond.

Costner is visited by a series of ghosts, including the banned 1919 White Sox players (aka those who intentionally lost the World Series in a game against the Cincinnati Reds in exchange for money), a dead doctor and his deceased dad to manifest some kind of allegory for personal redemption. 

7:15-10 p.m. Friday. Free. Great American Ball Park, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, Downtown, mlb.com
