The event planning arm of the Milwaukee Brewers baseball team will be hosting "Miller Park Movies," a series of outdoor movie double features in the parking lot of Miller Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The event will seem like a flash back to old drive-in movie theaters. A full-size screen will be erected for the movies, and the audio tracks will be transmitted via each auto's radio. The Klement's Sausage Haus will be open for concessions and restrooms.
"Brewers Enterprises is always looking for creative events to entertain families at Miller Park, and we believe the 'Miller Park Movies' will be a unique addition to our summertime schedule," said Brewers Executive Vice President - Business Operations Rick Schlesinger.

Major League was filmed at Milwaukee County Stadium, which was later replaced by the new Miller Park complex, so this choice is somewhat fitting. The movie also stars Brewers Hall-of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker.
Parking lot gates on June 5-6 will open at 7:30pm each night with the first movie beginning at dusk (approximately 8:30pm). The details for the August dates will be released at a later time.
Tickets will be available at the Miller Park Box Office, on brewers.com, by phone at 414-902-4000, and on the night of the event-space permitting.
