Green Screen Film Series: The Getaway

Friday nights in July, pack a picnic, cruise by Terry Allen’s Road Angel sound sculpture, and catch classic films selected by the artist, featuring car chases, questionable choices, and road trips on the run.

Refused parole, a convict (Steve McQueen) and his wife (Ali MacGraw) strike a deal with a crooked Texan who agrees to pull strings in return for help on a bank heist. They take off after the job goes awry, aiming to get to Mexico before they're caught or, worse, killed. (Directed by Sam Peckinpah, 1972, 122 min., PG)

Picnics welcome! Complimentary refreshments from Austin Gourmet Popcorn, Topo Chico, and Twisted X Brewing Co. Bring a blanket and come early to enjoy a road-inspired playlist created by KUTX’s Art Levy for the Green Screen Film Series and to check out vintage hot rods from Kontinentals Car Club.
