Lost in Translation
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!
Come early to stake out a spot on the lawn for Lost in Translation, our first Wex Drive-In movie of the year.
Sofia Coppola's celebrated follow-up to The Virgin Suicides, follows the budding relationship between an aging actor (Bill Murray) and a recent college graduate (Scarlett Johansson) as both cope with failing relationships and the existential loneliness brought about by a stay in Tokyo. The soundtrack includes music by Air, Squarepusher, and Kevin Shields of My Bloody Valentine. (102 mins., 35mm)
This film kicks off our summer outdoor Wex Drive-In series and previews our major summer movie series of July and August, Kinema Japan. Both will take viewers to Japan, with selections that encompass the entire spectrum of Japanese filmmaking, from samurai classics such as Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo (1961) to sci-fi stunners including the original Godzilla (1954).
Snacks and beverages will be available for purchase. In the event of rain, the film will screen in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM.
Members, stop by the membership table to receive your ticket for a scoop of free Jeni's ice cream. (Please remember to bring your membership card.)
