(Wes Anderson, 1996)
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.
Wes Anderson’s auspicious debut feature Bottle Rocket stars Owen and Luke Wilson and Robert Musgrave as a trio of misfits who can’t quite get their elaborate plans for a life of crime off the ground after knocking off a small bookstore. Also with James Caan. (92 mins., 35mm)
In the event of rain, the film screens in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM. Stop by the galleries at 7 PM for a curators’ talk, and learn more about the cartoon and comics-inspired exhibitions currently on view at the Wex. Heirloom café is open until 8 PM if you want to grab a bite before heading outside.
Upcoming Wex Drive-Ins in 35mm:
Rear Window on Thu, July 17
Mars Attacks! on Thu, Aug 14
