This Weekend at LACMA: Outdoor film screening, three free concerts, and more

Enjoy the beautiful summer weather tonight at our final Tim Burton outdoor film screening, Alice in Wonderland. In one of the director’s latest films, an older Alice rediscovers the whimsical world she encountered as a little girl. Stop into the galleries—free after 5 pm (except for Tim Burton) for LA County residents—or grab dinner or drinks at Ray’s and Stark Bar before the free screening starts at 8 pm. Picnics and blankets welcome!

If you’re craving a good old school horror flick, stop by on Saturday for our final Saturday Monster Matinee—Horror of Dracula—which is just $5 (or free if you’re a LACMA member).

We have three days of free concerts, beginning with The Ron McCurdy Collective tonight, Afro-Colombian ensemble Justo Almario Saturday evening, and classical cellist Daniel Rothmuller and pianist Bernadene Blaha on Sunday night. Also on Sunday, join artist James Jean and Giant Robot founder Eric Nakamura for a free talk in the Art Catalogues store to celebrate the release of REBUS, Jean’s new book.

If you are looking for things to do with your family, check out Andell Family Sundays and take part in family-friendly art projects, gallery tours, and more. This weekend, get inspired by Mark Rothko and explore color in an artist-led workshop.

Families and adults alike can also enjoy the newly installed Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads by Ai Weiwei. Come marvel at these massive sculptures and take a picture in front of your Chinese zodiac animal.

Also, for Tim Burton’s birthday yesterday, we asked visitors to take a picture with their birthday wishes for the director. Check out a slideshow of the pics here. We sent Mr. Burton the photos along with a note wishing him a very Happy Birthday from all his fans at LACMA.
