Wex Drive-In

The Wexner Center brings the big screen outside for our annual series of free, festive, open-air film screenings on the Wexner Center Plaza at 15th Avenue and High Street. All Wex Drive-In movies start at dusk (generally around 9 PM), but you’re invited to come at 8 PM to choose your spot. Pack up a few blankets or lawn chairs, and get ready to enjoy beer from Seventh Son Brewing and wine from our cash bar, pizza from Mikey’s Late Night Slice, and free Pam’s Market Popcorn. All films screened in 35mm!

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.
