"Movies & Music on the Lawn, Baton Rouge Gallery’s (“BRG”) popular and inventive summer film series, pairs up some of the most iconic silent films of the 1920s and 30s with the best local, contemporary bands in our area. The band performs a never-before-heard score for the film, which is projected on a huge inflatable screen on the lawn behind the gallery (inside BREC’s historic City Park).
As always, the screening begins at 8 p.m. (or sundown – whichever comes last) and the $5 price of admission includes free bottomless popcorn. In 2014, the Movies & Music on the Lawn series will again include five unique marriages of film and music, with films ranging from the romantic to the unsettling, the comedic to the action-packed. The same is true of the music with styles like Americana and ambient chamber rock, electronic and experimental folk all playing a part in 2014 series. This year. the series will close with a grand finale celebration that promises to be the biggest Movies & Music on the Lawn event in the program's 25+ year history. The exciting pairing for this event will be announced at the June 28 Movies & Music on the Lawn. Trust us, this one will be a night not to be missed!"
