Baton Rouge Gallery’s Movies & Music on the Lawn Returns in May
Movies & Music on the Lawn, Baton Rouge Gallery’s (“BRG”) popular and inventive summer film series, pairs up some of the most iconic silent films of the 1920s and 30s with the best local, contemporary bands in our area. The band performs a never-before-heard score for the film, which is projected on a huge inflatable screen on the lawn behind the gallery (inside BREC’s historic City Park).
As always, the screening begins at 8 p.m. (or sundown – whichever comes last) and the $5 price of admission includes free bottomless popcorn.
In 2013, the Movies & Music on the Lawn series included five unique marriages of film and music, with films ranging from the romantic to the unsettling, the comedic to the action-packed. The same was true of the music with styles like jazz and funk, bluegrass, indie pop and ambient chamber rock all playing a part in 2013's series.
The gallery was honored to partner with Whole Foods Market, Theatre Baton Rouge, BR Motion and John G. Turner & Jerry G. Fischer as sponsors of this year’s series. It is through their generosity that the gallery is able to continue to bring this unique event to the community..
Admission to Movies & Music on the Lawn is always free for BRG members and just $5 for non-members. Free, unlimited popcorn is included in the price of admission. The screening begins at 8 pm (or sunset – whichever comes last).
