After a year-long stint of pandemic-induced online streaming, the Museum of Fine Arts is ready to roll film in the flesh. The museum will christen their return to in-person screenings with La Strada, an Oscar-winning classic film from legendary Italian director, Frederico Fellini.
“Welcome back to Brown Auditorium Theater. We’re going to the movies at the MFAH starting September 10 with one of the most influential films ever made: Federico Fellini’s 1954 classic ‘La Strada'” the museum wrote in a post on Instagram.
Other films on the bill include the David Bowie-starring The Man Who Fell to Earth on September 12; 1960s French thriller, La Piscine, on September 16 and 17; recently-released Swan Song on September 26; romantic and visually extravagant In the Mood for Love on September 18; and Christopher Nolan’s time-bending sci-fi blockbuster Tenet on September 19.
The museum is also screening the finalists for the 24th annual Manhattan Short Film Festival, in which spectators will be able to watch and judge short films from around the world.
Masks must be worn throughout films. Adult (19+) are priced at $9. Senior (65+) tickets are $7 a piece. The museum will screen all of its films in the Brown Auditorium Theater.
