We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE




Twenty years after it was a big-screen hit, A League of Their Own visits a local ballpark -- with one of the stars accompanying it. ---

The 1992 comedy-drama, which tells the fact-based story of the World War II-era All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, will be featured in a free screening at Spring Mobile Ballpark following the Salt Lake Bees game vs. the Sacramento River Cats on Friday, July 27. Game time is 7:05 p.m., with doors opening for those wishing to attend the screening after the 8th inning.

As part of the event, A League of Their Own star Geena Davis will be in attendance, throwing out the first pitch, singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" for the 7th-inning stretch and participating in other special fan activities. As the movie becomes its own special piece of film history, enjoy this special way to see it in one of the most appropriate venues possible.
