Film In The Garden: The Venice Project says
Filmed during the 1999 Venice Biennale, this drama offers witty commentary on the role of art in society. Dennis Hopper and Lauren Bacall portray aristocratic siblings whose dying father has bequeathed the family's art collection to the Italian government, while flashbacks to the exploits of an ancestor 200 years earlier draw connections to ever-evolving theories of art.

This summer sit under the stars and enjoy a screening of the 1999 film The Venice Project (not rated) directed by Robert Dornhelm, presented in relation to "Venetian Views."

This film is not rated, but may be considered equivalent to an R rating by current Motion Picture of America Association standards due to some sexual content and strong language.

Due to popular demand, the Museum's summer film series has moved to the Botanical Garden east of the Museum to accommodate more attendees. Films are free and open to the public.

Grab a blanket, bring a few friends, and be sure to arrive early for a good seat on the lawn. Bring your own picnic dinner or order from Panama 66 (kitchen open until 5:00 p.m.) Please note alcoholic beverages are allowed in Balboa Park until 8:00 p.m. Films begin and sundown.
