Sunday Summer Cinema at BAMPFA
June 10–October 14, 2018

BYOLC (Bring Your Own Lawn Chair)

View movies outside on BAMPFA’s huge outdoor LED screen on Addison and Oxford Street. This is the place for summertime series of entertaining, family-friendly films! Bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the show.

FREE outside movie event to enjoy with the whole family!

Babette Cafe will be serving delicious specialty items outside, so come early for dinner.

The UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive (BAMPFA) in partnership with the Downtown Berkeley Association (DBA) presents “Dancing in the Streets”, a series of free summer movie matinees on the museum’s massive outdoor LED screen at Addison and Oxford. On the second Sunday of each month from June to October, audiences of all ages can enjoy joyous and entertaining dance movies that will have them dancing in the streets. A section of Addison Street between Oxford Street and Shattuck Avenue will be closed to traffic for each screening, where audiences can set up their own lawn chairs or picnic blankets in front of the giant outdoor BAMPFA screen—located just a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station. Refreshments are available to purchase from a pop-up stand operated by Babette, the café at BAMPFA.

Join the fun for the next movie on Sunday, Aug 12th at 4PM, featuring “Step” (US, 2017) 84 minutes. Praised as one of the most entertaining and heartwarming of recent documentaries, Amanda Lipitz’s Step follows the Lethal Ladies step team from the Baltimore Leadership School for Young Women, an inner city charter school that helps underserved girls prepare for college. At the center of the film are three seniors, all members of the step team.
