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

Wex Drive-In

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, pizza from Mikey’s Late Night Slice, and free Pam’s Market Popcorn. All films screened in 35mm!

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="">Umberto D. The party keeps going until the sun fades for our outdoor screening of href="">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.

Cosponsored by GenWex and CYP (Columbus Young Professionals) Club.
