“Batter up, hear that call. The time has come for one and all... to play ball.”


Bechdel Test Fest are proud to celebrate the legacy of the late, great Penny Marshall with a special screening of A League Of Their Own at The Prince Charles Cinema.


Based on the real-life story of the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, the film stars Geena Davis, Madonna and Lori Petty as members of a hodgepodge group of talented female players, who strike up a women’s league when their male counterparts are called to duty during World War II.


For us, A League Of Their Own is the perfect film to remember Penny Marshall with, as it captures the vivacious, unified spirit of women pulling together and making the best out of a bad situation.


Join us for a night of Bechdel fun and baseball, with a very special guest intro from film critic megastar Kate Stables.
