20 Million Miles to Earth

Nathan Juran, 1957

Wex Drive-In

The Wexner Center brings the big screen outside for the Wex Drive-In series of free open-air film screenings on the Wexner Center Plaza. Bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating at these festive, informal events. All Drive-In movies start at dusk (generally around 9 PM), but you are invited to come at 8 PM to choose your spot and enjoy the company of friends and fellow film fans. On tap for the evening: beer from Seventh Son Brewing and wine from our cash bar, plus Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams (with a free scoop for members), Pam’s Market Popcorn, and pizza from Mikey’s Late Night Slice.

In 20 Million Miles to Earth the first spaceship to Venus returns with an unexpected passenger: a Venusian in pupa form that grows into the rampaging giant "Ymir." Featuring the stop-motion talents of Ray Harryhausen, the film climaxes in a fantastic showdown between the military and the monster atop Rome’s Coliseum. (82 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the screening will move inside the center and start at 9 PM.
