The Iowa cornfield-turned-baseball field made famous in a 1989 movie is going to see another tourism boost this summer. The on-line movie rental service Netflix plans a promotional tour to show ten top movies in the locations where they were shot.
“Field of Dreams” will play at the now-legendary baseball field in the northeast Iowa town of Dyersville, surrounded by cornstalks. It’s sure to draw baseball buffs from across the region to again watch the Kevin Costner film but in the homerun setting on the field itself.
Also during August, “Jaws” will play at Martha’s Vineyard, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” in Chicago, “The Shining” at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado, and the original “Poseidon Adventure” will play aboard the Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach, California.
