GenWex Presents: Peronis on the Plaza

Free, cash bar

GenWex Presents

Programs developed by and for the Wexner Center's young patrons' group.

Wex Drive-In

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.

Thu, July 15, 2010 6:30 PM

Come early, stake out a prime blanket spot, and enjoy an ice cold Peroni as we celebrate an evening of Italy’s finest. We’ll start at 6:30 with the tastes and smells of wood-fired pizzas, red wine, and the smooth sounds of 1970s Italian disco.

At 7 PM, you can either stay outside or head into our theater for a screening of Vittorio De Sica’s neorealist classic href="http://www.wexarts.org/fv/index.php?eventid=4825">Umberto D. The party keeps going until the sun fades for our outdoor screening of href="http://www.wexarts.org/fv/index.php?eventid=4813">The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Stop by, connect and reconnect with GenWex and CYP Club friends, and get the inside scoop on what’s happening this fall and beyond at the Wex. (In the event of rain, all outdoor events will be rescheduled for the following evening.)

You can RSVP for this event here.

Proceeds from GenWex events benefit Wexner Center education programs.
