October 25, 2021

On Thursday, October 28 at 7 p.m. the 22nd Annual Newport Beach Film Festival will close with the West Coast Premiere of WAR ON THE DIAMOND at The New Port Theater in Corona del Mar. 

Directed by Emmy and Peabody Award Winner Andy Billman and based on the award-winning book The Pitch That Killed by Mike Sowell, WAR ON THE DIAMOND tells the story of Ray Chapman - the only MLB player killed by a pitch - and the 100-year rivalry between two baseball teams and two cities - Cleveland and New York. 

Produced by Art Horan, Danielle Alberico, and longtime Newport Beach resident, Pamela Lynn Sullivan. Former MLB pitcher and local resident Jim Abbott is a featured interview. A Closing Night reception will follow the screening at The New Port Theater.

Tickets to Opening Night and Closing Night are $95. The event is open to attendees 21 and older.
