If Gelardin and Netflix just are not doing it for you lately, head on over to the National Gallery of Art’s East Building Auditorium to catch one of the many atypical films showing.
Every weekend the Gallery shows a variety of films ranging from classic to documentary to avant-garde in coordination with the International Federation of Film Archives.
This weekend promises to entertain with James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake showing at 2:00pm on Saturday, July 16, and the newly preserved French films Mots Croises and Bonheur Conjugal! on Sunday, July 17, at 4:30pm followed by a piano performance.
Doors open half an hour before each showing. See the Gallery’s program for more information and show listings for the quarter.
Keeping it Classic
If you want to take the more light hearted route this weekend, stop by the National Archives on Saturday, July 16, for a showing of the original Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory at noon in the William G. McGowan Theater. Unfortunately, Willy Wonka candy is not included.
P.S. This humble writer may or may not definitely be at the free outdoor showing of Breakfast at Tiffany’s this Thursday, July 14, at the Capital River Front.
