The final flick for the year in the Saint Louis Art Museum’s Outdoor Film Series happens Friday, Aug. 1 2014. It’s a great movie as St. Louis celebrates its 250th– with Meet Me in St. Louis.
The movie transports you back in time to when the 1904 World’s Fair was held right there on Art Hill. It’s a great way to spend the first evening of August!
The movie play on an enormous screen on Art Hill beginning at 9 p.m.
Movie-goers can bring their own picnics or purchase food from the third annual Food Truck Fest presented by Sauce Magazine. Food Truck service will begin at 7:00 pm.
Located in the East Building, the Museum’s Panorama Restaurant offers full-service dining, and the Cafe, located on Level 1, serves casual fare. Both will also be open until 9 pm.
Here’s the lowdown on tonight’s flick:
