‘A League of their Own’

Geena Davis coming to Ketchum for screening

Geena Davis

Academy Award-winning actress Geena Davis will be in Ketchum on Thursday, July 26, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of her hit film "A League of Their Own."

Davis will introduce a free community screening of the film, presented by Zions Bank, at 8:45 p.m. at the Sun Valley Pavilion at Sun Valley Resort.

  The PG-rated film tells the story of two sisters who join the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League and struggle to help it succeed amid their own growing rivalry.

   While Davis is best known for the iconic characters she created in such films as "Thelma and Louise," her latest endeavor, the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, is the leading nonprofit working behind the scenes in Hollywood to improve media images of girls and women.

  Founded in 2004, the institute and its programming arm, See Jane, are engaging film and television creators to dramatically increase the percentages of female characters—and reduce gender stereotyping—in media made for children 11 and under.  For a complete interview with the actress, see next Wednesday's paper on July 25.
