What better setting for classic cinema than the Lord Mansion, historic site of the State Capital Museum and the “Movies at the Mansion” series, which returns for its 8th season this summer?
Presented on Fridays nights in August, each movie is introduced with a short presentation on the historic context of the film. Moviegoers can bring their own chairs or blankets. Candy, soda, and popcorn are available for purchase at the movie, while coffee is free. If it rains, the film will be screened in the Coach House at the museum.
“We are proud to host this series every year,” explains Susan Rohrer, manager of the State Capital Museum. “Not only is it fun for staff to invite the local community to this outdoor program, but it allows the museum to connect people with historical events and eras through film.”
The selected films are rated PG, under two hours long, and suitable for all audiences.
Movies at the Mansion Schedule: Film introduction at 8:45pm, screening begins at 9pm.
August 7: “Some Like it Hot”
August 14: “East of Eden”
August 21: “Sabrina”
August 28: Hitchcock’s “Notorious”
“Classic Movies at the Mansion” is sponsored by Susan and Patrick Dunn and the Law Offices of Allen T. Miller.
