Based on the popular and long running summer program, Screen on the Green, the Museum will present three films this year in the newly redesigned May S. Marcy Sculpture Garden. Due to new construction and permitting processes in Balboa Park, the Museum can no longer secure the traditional space of the East Lawn for Screen on the Green. The Sculpture Court Café will be open for all Film in the Garden film screenings and will offer a variety of snacks and beverage options, including a full bar. Please note no outside alcohol will be allowed into the venue.

2013 Schedule

  • Sunset Boulevard (1950)
    Monday, July 22nd
    Examine the complex notions of fame and anti-celebrity in Arnold Newman: Masterclass. Compare them to this story about the effects of Hollywood fame on Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard presents the grand and bizarre tale of an increasingly reclusive silent-screen star, her once husband and now butler, and the young screen writer who is consumed by her madness. NR, 110 minutes
  • Rear Window (1954)
    Monday, July 29th
    What are photographers to do with free time on their hands? As naturally keen observers of life, they can't help but notice everything around them. Alfred Hitchcock's classic noir presents the journey of photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) as he transitions from suspecting neighbor to obsessed private investigator during a long convalescence in his busy apartment building. In conjunction with Arnold Newman: Masterclass. PG, 115 minutes.
  • Beat Street (1984)
    Monday, August 5th
    Summer Break 2013: Double Portraits offers new thoughts and histories from the world of graffiti and a chance to revisit classic representations of its early days. Beat Street presents a cross section of 1980's hip-hop culture, bringing together rap, breakdancing, DJs, and graffiti writers. With cameos by some of the most important hip-hop musicians of the era, such as Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force and Grand Master Melle Mel & the Furious Five, the film serves as both cultural document and unabashed camp fun. PG, 106 minutes
