(Alfred Hitchcock, 1954)
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.
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.
