MFA Film is thrilled to present Sunset Cinema, a free open-air theater with screenings on the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston's Huntington lawn! Join us on August 17 for the 1967 classic «Cool Hand Luke,» lauded as one of the greatest films of all time.

We suggest bringing a blanket or low chair, a picnic supper, and nonalcoholic beverages to enjoy during the film. Beer, wine and snacks are available for purchase. Lawn games; 60s soul, funk and R&B by DJ John Funke of Soulelujah; and art-making activities begin at 6:30 pm. The film starts at sundown, around 8 pm.

Before the film, travel back to the psychedelic era of the 1960s and ’70s and join local artist Charlotte Hamlin to discover tie-dye techniques and styles and make your own tie-dye to bring home. All art-making materials will be provided.

The hard-hitting drama «Cool Hand Luke» follows petty criminal Luke Jackson (Paul Newman) who is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm. Luke refuses to play by the rules of the sadistic warden (Strother Martin) or the yard’s resident heavy, Dragline (George Kennedy, in an Oscar-winning role). Luke’s bravado in the face of his oppressors makes him a rebel hero to his fellow convicts, and a thorn in the side of the prison officers. Part of MFA Film's series «Feed Your Head: Films from 1967,» «Cool Hand Luke» embodies the defiance of a generation who took on the establishment to end a war.

The Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Film Program at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is funded by the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation. «Sunset Cinema» is supported by the Carlotte and Samuel Berk Fund.
