Urban Drive-In with DIY Food Culture

Via Moore College of Art & Design

Goal

To introduce the work of local visual artists and filmmakers to a wider audience by establishing an urban drive-in movie theater on the Parkway

Summary: To introduce the work of local visual artists and filmmakers to a wider audience, The Galleries at Moore College of Art & Design will establish an outdoor independent film series on the Ben Franklin Parkway. From May through September, films by area artists and filmmakers will be shown on a large, outdoor screen. Filmmakers will introduce their work and participate in Q&A sessions with moviegoers. In place of the traditional concession stand, a rotating roster of Philadelphia food trucks will serve a variety of street snacks for picnicking in Aviator Park. In the spirit of classic drive-in theaters, video works and short films by area artists will precede feature presentations.
