The Graduate

(Mike Nichols, 1967)

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.

A funny, pointed evocation of the post-college doldrums and the source of many cultural touchstones of the 1960s.

An essential comedy of the New Hollywood, The Graduate stars Dustin Hoffman as a recent grad disillusioned by what he perceives as his middle-class parents’ empty, alcohol-filled, comfort-obsessed lifestyle. Enter Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). The film’s influential soundtrack with songs such as “The Sound of Silence” and “Mrs. Robinson” made folk-pop stars Simon & Garfunkel into household names. (105 mins., 35mm)

In the event of rain, the film screens in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM.
