After 2.5 years in production, Jon Leonoudakis's documentary, "Not Exactly Cooperstown," will premiere at the Pasadena Central Library on Sunday August 19 at 2 p.m.
This isn't your father's baseball documentary. It's an unorthodox look at America's most orthodox game. There's something for everyone: Americana, folklore, sex, religion, scandal, fandom, poetry, sport and art. You can visit the film's website at notexactlycooperstown.com. as well as its Facebook page.
The screening is going to feature a special $2 trivia quiz (if you get the question right, you get a crisp $2 bill) and attendees are encouraged to arrive in full baseball regalia for the chance of a special prize. Admission is free and open to the public. The film was made for non-profit/educational purposes and will eventually be donated to schools and universities around the US.
If you miss it in August, it will also be playing in South Pasadena, Orange County, San Diego and San Francisco in the fall before it goes on tour to the midwest and east coast.
