Special Screening – The Mendoza Line

Special Screening of The Mendoza Line

INDEPENDENT FEATURE FILM FOCUSES ON MINOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, HISPANIC AND IMMIGRATION ISSUES AND CO-STARS HOLLISTER ACTOR AND ARTS ACTIVIST CESAR FLORES.

The new feature length baseball themed drama “The Mendoza Line” will be screened for one night only on July 30th at 7pm at the Premier Cinemas 641 McCray St.,Hollister, CA 95023.
The movie stars Juan Carlos Arenas with supporting roles by Lon Sierra, HOLLISTER ACTOR Cesar Flores , Laurie Burke, Dawayne Jordan, and Valentina Lugo.

The movie centers around Ricardo Perez, a low round draft pick struggling through his third year in A-ball as a back-up catcher, barely hitting above The Mendoza Line (.200). His marriage is on the rocks and while he was brought to the United States as a baby, his status as an undocumented immigrant is a constant weight on his young shoulders.

The Mendoza Line takes place in the span of a few days after the June draft when a handful of players will be released to make way for the newest prospects. This is not a fake baseball movie with a predictable melodramatic “big game” ending. It is the dramatic and comedic reality of minor league baseball where more than just wins and losses are at stake. It not only gives us an inside look at life in the lower minor leagues, but explores social issues that go beyond baseball. In sports, personal relationships collide with the harsh business realities of, “What have you done for me lately?”

A portion of the proceeds will benefit The San Benito Arts Council.
TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR, ON-LINE AT EVENTBRITE (search “The Mendoza Line”) or by phone at 408-804-3235.
