This summer, movies at the Crocker are off the wall! Enjoy friends, family, and lots of laughs as we screen three classic films in the Museum's courtyard. Arrive early for comedy shenanigans provided by Comedy Spot; selections of wine, beer, and movie-inspired cocktails; and our new Supper Shack meal deals! For the best seat in the house, bring your own chair, or rent one of our premier-seating cabanas. Cabanas are $60 for members, and $100 for nonmembers, and include movie admission, drink tickets and prime seating for 6. Reservations required.

The Courtyard opens at 7 PM, and movies begin around 8:15 PM. Visitors may not bring in outside food or beverages (excluding water).

A rare musical and adventure comedy, The Blues Brothers stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as Joliet Jake and Elwood Blues, characters developed on Saturday Night Live 40 years ago. In a mad race across America, they happen upon some of the greatest soul, R&B, and blues singers, including James Brown, Cab Calloway, Ray Charles, and John Lee Hooker. Directed by John Landis, famous for Michael Jackson’s Thriller video and National Lampoon's Animal House, this film is just pure fun.
