May 16, 2016 – The Shelby Park Picture Show 2016 Movie Series will not only provide a new opportunity for Nashville residents, but the series will also benefit a host of non-profit organizations in the Nashville community.

That’s right!  We are proud to announce that alongside our founding benefactor SANDLOTT Sports 501(c)(3)SPPS will be donating the proceeds of each and every single show in the 2016 series to a host of local Nashville non-profits.  Who are our non-profit beneficiaries?  Well we have spoken to quite a few and our list is definitely starting to take shape, BUT we want to hear from those who need our help and want to help lift the 2016 SPPS series to the next level.

How do you apply?  Simply go to and fill out the application form for review.  Any questions or trouble filling out an application, email  Now even though there are 8 dates in the 2016 series, some shows may benefit more than one local non-profit organization, depending on their size and a few other things.  If your organization doesn’t make the list for 2016, then you have a head start for 2017, and the years following.

At the end of the day, it gets down to “why do we have the SPPS movie series?”  It’s really simple guys.  SANDLOTT Sports, The East Nashvillian,  and show producer True Source Entertainment came together to do something different.  What’s better, whats more American even, than watching a classic movie with impeccable sound, on a world class screen, on one of the country’s top baseball fields?  I mean it’s pretty simple.  This is a community event series, to benefit the community AND the organizations within, and in the process we will continue to improve the series year in and year out to make this a destination event that you and yours look forward to every single year.


What else new is happening with the 2016 series?  Well to start we added 4 additional dates for 2016 to total 8 show dates (the 2015 series was 4 dates), AND we are currently polling movie selections.  Wait…What?  That’s right!  You get to submit your movie choices that you would like to see on the giant LED screen, and the movie titles that get the most nominations will be voted on BY YOU.  The shows that get the most votes, well these will be our titles for the 2016 series.  How cool is that?  Where do you vote?
