More than 5,500 people have RSVPed on Facebook for the screening in Dupont Circle at 8:30 p.m.
“When we first posted it, it was by far the quickest and largest response we’ve gotten for a movie,” said Aaron DeNu, Dupont Festival’s principal organizer. “There appears to be quite a huge fan club for the movie.”
The showing was originally slated for June but had to be rescheduled because of rain. Luckily for the upcoming screening, rain isn’t yet in the long-term forecast.
DeNu encourages attendees to bring baseball mitts and play catch before the film starts.
