Wayne's World, Bad News Bears kick off Birdcage summer movie viewing

Posted: 6/3/2021


Schwing! In addition to our goal of making Canaries games a premier Sioux Falls summertime experience, we're also planning on turning The Birdcage into an awesome venue beyond baseball. This includes last autumn's 1st Annual Canaries Beerfest, future live music concerts, and movie viewings. Why limit that giant, new and beautiful Daktronics video board to just videos and live footage during baseball games?

So, on Saturday, The Birdcage turns into "Wayne's World." Fans are encouraged to stick around after "Saturday Night Live on a Saturday Day Night... Live Night" to watch the full-length widescreen feature of SNL's most successful SNL cinematic franchise! Even better news -- with the 6:05 game being the second leg of a doubleheader, the 7-inning game means an even earlier start time for Wayne's World. It's Party Time! It's Excellent!  

Three weeks later, it's our celebration of the 45th Anniversary of one of the best baseball movies of all time, Bad News Bears. We'll have Morris Buttermaker koozies available to early arriving fans and part of an online ticket package. We'll show some of the best clips from the movie during the game. And then, we'll show the whole thing!


Tuesday, June 8 -- Groovy Tunes-day with the Rolling Stones! 
Or, should we say "Ruby Tuesday!" Either way, you will get satisfaction by hearing songs and seeing videos of the No. 2 band of all time, as voted by... Rolling Stone magazine. Hosted by Rock 'N' Roll Hall of Famer Mick Jagger......'s distant cousin Vic, we'll start you up with our Groovy Tunes-days ticket deal -- a discount for anyone age 50 and over (in person, at ticket office 9a-5p, or ticket window starting at 5). Plus, it's Nacho Tuesday -- half price nachos with purchase of a regular nacho order. And, as always, with our "Fleet Farm Pick the Stick" Canaries batter of the game, you're just a shot away (well, a hit) from receiving a $10 off coupon from Fleet Farm. If it's your first time at The Birdcage in a while, well, we missed you! Now, hey, hey, you, you, get off of my cloud!
Wednesday, June 9 -- Awesome 80's Wednesday with The Breakfast Club
We'll describe the "ruckus." When it is 7:06, you will have approximately 2 hours and 54 minutes to think about why you are here. You won't be pondering the error of your ways, but instead the brilliance of them. This won't be detention, because you didn't do anything wrong. You were right to rejoice in this John Hughes high school masterpiece, with clips and trivia on our Daktronics board. Awesome 80's Wednesday means $8 tickets (online only)80 cent hot dogs with the purchase of another hot dog, and 8% off all merchandise all evening. If we give you the bull, you can give us the horns! We won't forget about you. We'll be alone, dancing! You know it, baby!

Thursday, June 10 -- Mess with Texas Night on College Night for Thirsty Thursday!
Yee-haw! The Canaries are playing the Cleburne Railroaders, so why not mess with Texas themes? Wear a cowboy hat, get a ticket discount. Enter a contest where the "Most Texas" costume wins a $100 Canaries EZ Ticket book -- and use your imagination. (We're looking at you, cowboys and cowgirls, and wannabe cowboys and cowgirls!) There will be some ropin' and a (water gun) shootout! We'll have a "Duell" -- our GM Duell Higbe, that is. All music will be by Texas-based musicians, so get ready for some Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Buddy Holly, Janis Joplin, George Strait, and ZZ Top, ya'll. Plus, it's our first College Night at The Birdcage! $5 tickets to current college students with valid I.D.! And, as always, it's Thirsty Thursday! -- Get two domestic 16 oz. tallboys for $10 or two craft/import 16 oz. tallboys for $12 (through the end of the 5th inning).

Reminder: Sundays are Sunday Family FunDays... Play catch in the outfield before the game and run the bases after the game! Family 4-packs -- 4 tickets, 4 hot dogs, 4 sodas for $50! (Online purchase required). That's about half price!
