American Visionary Art Museum Release:

The American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) will present its 13th season of Flicks from the Hill, the museum’s wildly popular summer outdoor film series, on Thursday nights at 9 pm starting July 6 and running through August 24. AVAM will screen a selection of FREEfamily-friendly films in the Hughes Family Outdoor Theater on the eastern slope of Federal Hill. The museum’s buildings and exhibitions are also free and open to the public from 5:00 to 9:00 pm on Flicks nights, and a variety of free or low-cost pre-movie programs are scheduled for each night as well.

The 2017 films, inspired by our current thematic exhibition Yummm! The History, Fantasy, and Future of Food, are as follows:

July 6: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) (moved indoors due to weather)

July 13: Napoleon Dynamite

All screenings begin at 9 pm and are free. In the event of inclement weather, the movie will be screened indoors on the third floor of AVAM’s Jim Rouse Visionary Center.
