The movie will begin about 9 p.m. or shortly thereafter, once it gets dark. The city has rented a 40-foot-long movie screen.

"Little Big League," released in 1994, is a fictional story of a 12-year-old boy who inherits the Minnesota Twins from his late grandfather. The boy decides to manage the team himself.

Movie-goers are encouraged to bring a blanket and get comfortable. The movie will be shown at the waterfront near the Rotary Pavilion. Concessions will be available for purchase.

"I've heard a lot of talk about it; lots of people have been calling," said Samantha Parker, events coordinator with the city of Bemidji. "People seem to be really excited about it."

The city earlier had invited the public to vote on the movie. The top choice was "Little Big League," which beat out other titles such as "Kung Fu Panda," "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Charlotte's Web."
