Location: Botanical Garden Lawn

Event Navigation

Thursday, 8:00 p.m.
Film begins at sundown.


Take a trip into the art world as you sit under the stars in beautiful Balboa Park. Grab a picnic, a blanket, and a few friends and enjoy a selection of films whose themes take inspiration from the Museum’s permanent collection, celebrating the recent completion of a large-scale reinstallation of these galleries. Films begin at sundown (approximately 8:00 p.m.) at the Botanical Lawn (east of the Museum.)

Winner of seven Cesars from the French Academy, this film paints the portrait of Séraphine Louis, a devout and eccentric woman and self-taught painter. She was discovered working as a housekeeper by Wilhelm Uhde, an art critic and gallerist famous for being an early collector of Picasso and Braque. Uhde admires the expressive power of Louis’s work, convinced she was a genius of the Naïve art genre, and comes to support her artistic endeavors.

Panama 66’s Grab-n-Go will be open until 8:00 p.m.

2 hours 5 minutes. This film is not rated, but would be considered suitable for most audiences by current Motion Picture of America Association standards.


Please Note: Event may be cancelled due to inclement weather.
