Nelson-Atkins Museum launches outdoor cinema summer series
Movie nights officially will soon no longer have to happen on the couch at home with the arrival of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art’s ‘Tivoli Under the Stars”.
This outdoor Friday night series begins May 7 with a viewing of Night at the Museum. For Friday nights all summer, moviegoers can gather in a socially distanced fashion to watch movies projected against the Bloch building at sunset.
Groups that plan to attend together can reserve a “pod”, an eight-foot section on the lawn that accommodates four guests at a time. Museum members can reserve pods for $36, and pods are available at $42 for all other guests.
Screenings will begin 10-15 minutes after sunset each night, offering a range of films from Mamma Mia! to The Princess Bride.
