(Alfred Hitchcock, 1954)
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.
Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window stars Jimmy Stewart as a photographer sidelined by a broken leg who happens to live in an apartment with a bird’s eye view of all of the other apartments in his complex. His daily entertainment consists of visits from girlfriend Grace Kelly (which isn’t bad!) and observing the lives of his neighbors. When he notices that the wife of one of his neighbors is missing, he is convinced she’s been murdered. (112 mins., 35mm)
In the event of rain, the film screens in Mershon Auditorium at 9 PM. Heirloom café is open until 8 PM if you want to grab a bite before heading outside.
