Vintage Movie Night is a monthly series that features film historian and preservationist Eric Grayson as he presents a series of unique and rare vintage film titles. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Vintage Movie Night will not be held in our Main Gallery this Fall.
For Sept-Oct, Vintage Movie Night is moving to the Corporate Shelter (see map in discussion) adjacent to the Garfield Park Arts Center, where guests can watch from their cars in the parking lot similar to a drive-in movie. No reservations required, spots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. No concessions will be served at this time. While there is no charge for these movies, we do encourage a suggested donation of $5 at https://garfieldparkindy.org/product/giving-to-garfield/ to support future programs in Garfield Park. A donation bucket will also be available at the event.
The movie will start after sundown, but plan to get to the park 45 minutes to an hour early to set up and settle in for the show! Restrooms are only available through the outdoor port-o-lets. There is one located right by the parking lot next to the Corporate Shelter. Guests are welcome to bring their own coolers of food and non-alcoholic beverages. Please note alcohol is not permitted. Lastly, per the Marion County Public Health Department, face masks are mandated for all residents when they are inside public buildings and/or unable to maintain adequate social distancing (minimum six feet) outdoors.

This rare technicolor print features actors Jeff Morrow, Rex Reason, and Faith Domergue. A scientist finds a mysterious catalogue of parts, which he orders, and it contains instructions on how to build an alien communication device. The aliens convince him to help them work on uranium power to help combat their interplanetary war.
