The National Museum Of American Jewish History To Host A “Steamy Summer Cinema Series,” Wednesdays In July
Join longtime film critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer Carrie Rickey for a weekly cinematic celebration that stirs up memories of summer camp, family holidays, bungalows, and a little summertime romance.
Each of the planned films explore a quintessential part of the American Jewish experience: summer.
First up is Marjorie Morningstar on July 11 starring Gene Kelly and Natalie Wood; Dirty Dancing is shown on July 18 in honor of the movie’s 25th anniversary; and July 25 will feature A Walk on the Moon starring Diane Lane, Viggo Mortensen and Liev Schreiber.
The movies are shown in the Dell Theatre. The receptions will be in the 5th floor ballroom with access to the gorgeous outdoor terrace (see above).
Tickets, $8 for members and $10 for non-members for single movies, are available online. Save 20% when you purchase all three films.
