Films in the Garden: Sunset Boulevard
Examine the complex notions of fame and anti-celebrity in Arnold Newman: Masterclass. Compare them to this story about the effects of Hollywood fame on Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson). Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard presents the grand and bizarre tale of an increasingly reclusive silent-screen star, her once-husband and now-butler, and the young screen writer who is consumed by her madness. The Sculpture Court Café will offer a variety of snacks and beverage options, including a full bar. No outside alcohol will be allowed into the venue.
