Orson Welles, 1948

Wex Drive-In

The Wexner Center brings the big screen outside for Wex Drive-In, 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, plus Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams (with a free scoop for members) and free Pam’s Market Popcorn.

Gorgeous Elsa Bannister (Rita Hayworth) lures seaman Mike O’Hara (Welles) into an intricate web of intrigue, betrayal, and murder. (The two were married but estranged during the filming.) The unforgettable finale in a funhouse hall of mirrors is an amazing demonstration of Charles Lawton, Jr.’s brilliant camerawork and Welles’s flamboyant direction. (87 mins., 35mm)

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