One of the great pleasures of summer in Wellesley is the Wellesley College Davis Museum‘s family-friendly Outdoor Summer Film series. Picture you and your family, outside on the Davis Plaza on a warm summer evening in a relaxed atmosphere where nobody raises and eyebrow if the little ones get antsy. Sounds like summer heaven to me. Included in the festivities will be art activities, tours of the galleries, and extended museum hours. There’s free popcorn for the kids, and free beer for parents, so there’s just no way you can go wrong here.
- Museum open until 7 p.m.
- Art activities from 7-8 p.m.
- Screenings start at 8 p.m.
