Barnsdall Outdoor Movies: “Swingers”

A modern Hollywood classic returns to the neighborhood — join us for our inaugural Barnsdall Outdoor Movie Night, where we will be screening the 1996 film “Swingers,” starring Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, and Heather Graham, written by Jon Favreau, directed by Doug Liman.

SCREENING: The screening of “Swingers” will begin at 8pm. We will request a $10 suggested donation if you wish to see the film but do not want to participate in the Beer Tasting. COME EARLY TO SECURE A PLACE ON THE LAWN!

We are excited to be showing “Swingers” as our first outdoor screening, as it has become a modern classic – the seminal film depicting this always-changing neighborhood. The screening will take place on the West Lawn of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House, perched on the beautiful Olive Hill.

BEER TASTING with SILVERLAKE WINE: From 5:30 to 7:30pm, Silverlake Wine will be presenting our Beer Tasting, offering four unique selections of artisanal beers. Come early, have some beer, and secure your spot in front of the screen. Cost is $25, which includes the $10 suggested donation for the screening.

All profits from the screening of “Swingers” and the Beer Garden will benefit Barnsdall Art Park Foundation programs and projects, such as Free Sunday Art Classes for children and families in the community, as well as capital projects like the Monument Sign and restoration of the Hollyhock Motor Court.
