Weather Update: We're sorry to report that due to weather, tonight's outdoor screening of American Graffiti is being moved indoors. The screening will begin around 9 PM and is still free.

American Graffiti is being presented as a free outdoor screening in our Wex Drive-In series. Come at 8 PM to claim your spot and get ready with drinks (cash bar), snacks, and free popcorn and Jeni’s ice cream. The film begins at dusk.

DJ Wolfman Jack spins the records that set the mood in this hit-filled coming-of-age film set amid the sock hops and drive-ins of Modesto, California, in the pre–Vietnam War era. Songs include Del Shannon's "Runaway" and the Platters' "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes." (110 mins., 35mm)

Wexner Center members receive a commemorative Wex Drive-In mug and discounted drinks at each outdoor film. Not yet a member? If you join at any Wex Drive-In screening, you'll receive a film/video T-shirt and two additional film passes (a $34 value).

In the event of rain or other bad weather, you can see American Graffiti in the Film/Video Theater at 9 PM.
