Movies & Music on the Lawn
Baton Rouge Gallery's popular summer film series, Movies & Music on the Lawn - presented by Pop Shop Records, pairs iconic silent films with the best local, contemporary bands in our area for four truly unique nights. Each band performs a never-before-heard score, live, while the film is projected on a huge inflatable outdoor screen on the lawn.

Movies & music on the Lawn’s twenty-first season:
For more than two decades, the summertime in BREC's City Park has been a time and place for one of the most unique film series in our region. Over that time, thousands have enjoyed the reimagining of classic silent films by contemporary musicians and the magical moments that have sprung from dozens of unlikely pairings. Whether its a indie rock band playing alongside a melodramatic romance or a DJ breathing new life into a slapstick comedy, something special happens when the best silent films of all time end up in the hands of the best musicians of our time (and place). And that tradition continued in 2019 with our 21st season lineup!
