A sublime concoction of music, dance, and artistry, An American in Paris tells the story of a penniless expatriate painter (Gene Kelly) and his romance with the beautiful Lise (Leslie Caron). The film’s climactic 17-minute ballet sequence features Impressionist set designs inspired by the work of numerous iconic French artists, including Renoir, Rousseau, and Toulouse-Lautrec. 1951, Rated PG, 115 min.

Film screenings for Screen on the Green start at sundown (roughly 8:00 p.m.)  on Thursdays in August at the Botanical Garden Lawn in Balboa Park.

Sandwiches, snacks, and beverages (non-alcoholic) are available at Panama 66’s Grab & Go located in front of the restaurant until sundown.

Each Thursday in August, the Museum will host a Lovesac Lounge for one lucky group to enjoy an exclusive viewing experience during Screen On The Green. You can win the opportunity to watch the week’s film in a premium location on “The World’s Most Comfortable Seat™” for yourself and a group of friends.⁣⁣⁣⁣ Go to the Museum’s Instagram profile @sandiegomuseumofart to learn more.
