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.
- Thursday, July 10 — A Man For All Seasons
- Thursday, July 17 — Taming of the Shrew
- Thursday, July 24 — Jason and the Argonauts
- Thursday, July 31 — The Three Stooges In Orbit
- Thursday, August 7 — Harper
- Thursday, August 14 — Bye Bye Birdie
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.
