Thursday Afternoon Diversion: Kick That Ball

By Tankboy in Add category on Feb 26, 2009 7:00PM

Left Field is a documentary about a very adult version of kick ball played primarily by folks from the old school crustier side of the Wicker Park rock and/or roll bar scene. (There are no hipsters to be found in these reels.) The debut screening is tonight at The Portage Theater, and is sure to be attended by most of the film's subjects, so expect a rowdy showing.

Personally, we got all misty eyes over summer's on the Pontiac patio just by seeing who was involved in the movie.

Portage Theater, 4050 N Milwaukee, 7:30 p.m., $9.99
