Can Science Fiction and Western film genres exist together? Of course – it’s the movies! The Briscoe’s Summer Movie Series explores films that merge these two unique and contrasting styles on the third Sunday of August. A short presentation begins at 1 p.m., followed immediately by the screening. Each film is included in general museum admission, with FREE nachos, pickles and popcorn from Rico’s and FREE brews for guests 21+ courtesy of Ranger Creek Brewery. Pre-registration is encouraged to save your seat!
Nope (2022) Sunday, August 20 | 1 – 4 p.m.
Say “nope” to the dog days of summer by enjoying a cool movie at the Briscoe with this Western Sci-Fi horror film from director Jordan Peele (“Us”, “Get Out”). A family that trains and handles horses for film and television productions has to wrangle something they have never encountered before in a movie that will give you chills.
The Briscoe Summer Film Series will be shown to limited seating audiences in the museum’s Jack Guenther Pavilion, a spacious, high-ceilinged event facility that opens to the McNutt Sculpture Garden. Seating will be drafthouse style seating, with tables at each seat to allow for distancing between rows and social distancing between parties.
FREERecipients of SNAP, WIC, and MAP receive free admission through Museums for All, a cooperative which encourages families of all backgrounds to visit museums. Simply present an EBT card and a photo ID.
