On four Friday evenings this summer, the Saint Louis Art Museum will host free outdoor movies inspired by the remarkable story behind Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost Worlds. The films follow the search for something vital - whether it be truth, treasure or justice. Discover other lives, other eras, and other worlds with these epic quests.
The fun and festivities begin at 6 p.m., with the Food Truck Fest presented by Sauce Magazine. Adult beverages and soft drinks will be available for purchase at the Panorama booth on Art Hill. The Art Museum's cafe will be open until 8:45, and you are also welcome to bring your own picnic basket, lawn chairs and blankets. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be a "blankets only" section at the front of the viewing area.
Movies begin at 9 p.m.
You're also welcome to take a deep dive into the museum's family-friendly main exhibit, Sunken Cities: Egypt's Lost Worlds, before you take your seat on Art Hill. Advance ticket reservations are recommended.
The schedule is:
July 13: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981).
July 20: Hidden Figures (2016)
July 27: Dr. No (1962)
August 3: The NeverEnding Story (1984)
