Karl Freund, 1932
Classic movies screen under the stars on the Wexner Center Plaza in the Wex Drive-In series. Come early to choose your spot (bring blankets or lawn chairs). The party starts about 8 PM and the movies roll at about 9 PM. Enjoy beverages from our cash bar plus snacks like pizza to buy from Mikey’s Late Night Slice, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams (free scoop for members), and free Pam’s Market Popcorn.
Join us under the stars as we begin another summer of outdoor films at the Wex. In June, you can see the Universal horror classic The Mummy.
Boris Karloff stars in the atmospheric chiller as a mummy revived after thousands of years and causing mayhem as he searches for his reincarnated mate. (75 mins., 35mm)
In the event of rain, the screening and party will move inside the Wexner Center.
