Passport Thursdays – Outdoor International Film Series
Aug 2 2018
Join us Thursday evenings, 7 – 10pm on the lawn in front of the Queens Museum for Passport Thursdays, our annual outdoor international film series.
This year we’ve selected a series of films that explore the classic road movie genre – roadtrips, travel (mis)adventures or life-changing journeys, this theme resonates across cultures and ages. Over the course of five Thursdays, the featured films will take us to India, Ecuador, Ghana, Colombia, and the Dominican Republic.
Come early to get your body moving with Masala Bhangra: Bollywood dance workout classes from 7 – 7:45, then get cozy on our picnic blankets for the feature film starting at 8pm.
*In case of rain, all programs will take place inside the museum!
