Courtyard Classic Film Series: “Moby Dick”

Back Event Jul 2, 2015 @ 8:30 pm

This summer, the Crocker Art Museum takes inspiration from the exhibitions “David Ligare: California Classicist” and “Armin Hansen: The Artful Voyage” to bring you classic films centered on the sea and all its beauty, delights, and danger. 

Sacramento’s favorite film historian, Matías Bombal, will guest host each screening. Directed by John Houston and with a screenplay by Ray Bradbury, “Moby Dick” brings Melville’s seminal novel to life in heroic and harrowing fashion. Gregory Peck stars as determined Captain Ahab, fighting existential forces of nature in his hunt for the great white whale.

The Museum’s E. Kendell Davis Courtyard opens at 7 p.m. for attendees to set up lawn chairs and blankets (seating is also provided). The following movies will be shown this summer: “Jaws” (August 6), and “Sea Hawk” (September 3).

Before the film, savor a delicious, three-course dinner and artfully curated wines at the Crocker Cafe by Supper Club. For reservations and pricing call (916) 808-1289.

$5 Museum members, $6 students/youth, $8 nonmembers.
