The buzz about the feature film “Moneyball” is ramping up. Opening Friday, September 23, the film, based on the Michael Lewis book of the same name, highlights the A’s 2002 season. As least that’s the way it seems. If any of you attended the casting calls for crowd scenes last year, you will recall that most of the on-field filming centered around the 20th win of “The Streak.”
To highlight the release of the film, starring Brad Pitt as Billy Beane (did we forget to mention BRAD PITT?), members of the Ticket Operations Department worked across multiple companies to construct a unique ticket offer. Buy a Field Level ticket for Sunday, September 18 and receive a movie pass to see “Moneyball.” Online purchase is required using coupon code MONEYBALL. The movie passes, supplied by Hollywood Movie Money, will be available for use at more than 30 movie theaters throughout the Bay Area. Exact theaters will be determined, and searchable on Hollywood Movie Money using code 38340, once the film is released.
While we have to attach movie passes to game tickets, meaning we can’t hand out movie passes to all fans, a whole slew of fans can take home a piece of the “Moneyball” action on September 18. 10,000 fans, upon entering the ballpark that day, will receive a “Moneyball” t-shirt, presented by Pepsi Max.
