If we’re gonna roll around in the grass with our clothes on, there better be a good reason.
Like a free movie.
Fortunately, that’s exactly what’s happening every fourth Sunday through November as the AT&T Performing Arts Center and the Dallas Film Society join forces for Sunset Screenings at Annette Strauss Square.
For the fall series, key directors from the 1980s will be showcased. This Sunday’s film remembers the work of Robin Williams in Good Morning, Vietnam, directed by Barry Levinson.
Besides revisiting great films, what we love most about this event is that we can pack our own food and wine to picnic on the grass. Chairs at the front of the lawn are also available on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can also pre-purchase picnic boxes from Wolfgang Puck Catering when you reserve your spot.
But there’s something a lot more charming about throwing out a blanket with your friends and/or significant other to share food and wine while catching a classic on the big screen.
Just beware of the inevitable popcorn in your crack.
Quite possibly the only downside to horizontal movie viewing.
