Movies on the Green 2008

Every year, Lincoln’s Ross Theatre sponsors ​“Movies on the Green”, a series of free outdoor movie screenings in front of Kimball Recital Hall. Every year, the Ross puts together a rather eclectic program that spans high art and pop culture, and this year’s program is no different.

I don’t know how many screenings we’ll make it too — our moviegoing schedule is currently dictated by the littlest Opus — but I’m especially excited about A Man For All Seasons (read my review) and Jason And The Argonauts. The former because it’s just such a fantastic film, especially if you’re a fan of rich dialog, and the latter because who wouldn’t want to see Ray Harryhausen’s effects on the big screen?

In other Ross-related news, Mongol — the acclaimed Genghis Khan epic starring the always great Tadanobu Asano — will begin playing at the Ross on July 11.
