The Sunshine State has long played a starring role in the movies, from the days of silent films right up to the present, when “The Florida Project” wowed critics in 2017.
Keep cool with us this summer as we kick off our newest benefit for members: a series of Sunday matinees linked to the Sunshine State.
We’ll examine Florida’s past through a cinematic lens, as we enjoy both classic and recent films that feature Florida life or were filmed in the Sunshine State.
Screenings include fun backstage factoids about each film, as well as popcorn and beverages.
We begin the series with “The Florida Project,” then venture to the Cross Creek world of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings with “The Yearling” (1946), experience the campy thrills of “Creature from the Black Lagoon” (1954)—an inspiration for the Oscar-winning “Shape of Water”—and blast off into space with “Apollo 13” (1994).
Members FREE; Non-members $8.
May 20: “The Florida Project”
July 8: “The Yearling”
