The third movie of our 2023 Summer Film Series will be “Little Giants” This biographical sports film from 1994 is filled with rich history and thought-provoking drama.

Ever since childhood, nerdy Danny O’Shea (Rick Moranis) has felt inferior to his brother, Kevin (Ed O’Neill), a former college football star. Danny runs a gas station, while Kevin coaches the local youth football team. When Kevin’s team rejects Danny’s daughter, Becky (Shawna Waldron), because she’s a girl, Becky convinces her dad to start a rival team, though the city can support only one. To prove himself against his brother, Danny begins coaching his team of misfits for a playoff game. “Little Giants” is rated PG, and is 1 hours and 47 minutes long.

Bring your blankets and lawn chairs as we enjoy this film under the stars. Games and free snacks (while supplies last) will begin at 7 p.m., and the movie will start just after sundown. Due to rising costs, we won’t be providing a catered meal, but we will have extra packaged snacks on hand. You may bring your picnics and coolers, but please no pets or glass containers. 

This movie is being shown in conjunction with our upcoming exhibit A Spirit Can Ne’er Be Told…A Century of Aggie Football. Using original artifacts, as well as historical photographs, documents, and audiovisual materials, A Spirit Can Ne’er Be Told… will create an immersive exhibition environment in which visitors will get an up-close look at the team’s history, from its first official football game in 1894, through the era of Coach Jimbo Fisher. The exhibit will highlight significant accomplishments, important coaches, and notable players, as well as the unique traditions and celebrations Aggies have known and loved for a century and counting. A Spirit Can Ne’er Be Told…. will be on display in the Ansary Gallery of American History from August 28, 2023, until April 28, 2024.
