Free Movies Every Saturday in May at El Paso International Museum of Art
This month Sunset Film Society will be honoring the one person who still believes you can do anything despite all evidence to the contrary — mom.
In observance of Mother’s Day, Sunset Film Society is featuring a selection of films dedicated to her every Saturday in the month of May.
So if you’re looking to pay back the woman who carried you for 9 months physically and for countless years financially, consider taking her to a movie at the International Museum of Art.
Not only is the flick free to see, admission to the museum is free as well. Parking won’t cost you anything either. The only thing you’ll have to pay for is the freshly popped theater popcorn, soft drinks, and snacks.
The movies, all carefully curated favorites and timeless classics, are screened in the beautiful 168 seat auditorium inside the historic Henry Trost building the International Museum of Art calls home.
Each screening is hosted by life long film fan, historian and collector Jay Duncan in association with Sunset Film Society. The International Museum of Art is located at 1211 Montana in the Turney Mansion.
Happy Mother’s Day, mom! For all the love you’ve given me, I promise to one day pay some of your nursing home bill.
