Longer Ways to Go Film Series: Cars

Presented in conjunction with the current exhibition

As part of Members’ Summer Family Celebration, Phoenix Art Museum will turn its Great Hall into a drive-in movie theater with a special free screening of Cars. In this animated feature from Pixar Studios, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line. On route across the country, McQueen gets to know the offbeat characters of Radiator Springs, a sleepy Route 66 town, who help him realize that there are more important things than trophies and fame.

Space is limited to 200 PAM Members, first come, first served. Please RSVP here for the Family Summer Celebration to help us prepare for attendance. And, don't miss the Longer Ways to Go exhibition in the Norton Gallery before or after the movie!

Longer Ways to Go Film Series: Thelma & Louise

Presented in conjunction with the current exhibition

Join us at Phoenix Art Museum for a special screening of Ridley Scott’s classic road movie Thelma & Louise. Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis star as accidental outlaws on a desperate flight across the Southwest after a tragic incident at a roadside bar. With a determined detective (Harvey Keitel) on their trail, a sweet-talking hitchhiker (Brad Pitt) in their path and a string of crimes in their wake, their journey alternates between hilarious, high-speed thrill ride and empowering personal odyssey even as the law closes in.

Admission is free for PAM Members and included with Museum general admission.

This exhibition explores the symbiotic relationship between photography and the folklore of the American highway, including the emblematic Route 66. Longer Ways juxtaposes photographs from different eras, exploring themes related to travel, ideals of small-town life, the national heritage of westward expansion, and personal freedom,
